Review of Southern Pacifics Coast Daylight Route Volume 4 DVD

"The Most Beautiful Train In The World", SP's Coast Daylight, was a favorite of fans and travelers during its heyday in the 1940's. The luxurious, strikingly painted streamliner was conceived in the depths of the depression, and revolutionized rail coach travel. The new trains entered service March 21st, 1937, and were an instant success.<p>
Catenary Video's "COAST DAYLIGHT" captures the beauty of the trains as they traveled from Los Angeles along the scenic route to San Francisco. The Coast Line itself is also featured, with maps, stations, mail trains, freights and local switching. Authentic sound effects bring the brilliant 16mm source films of this legendary streamliner to life -- a feast for the eyes and ears. For those who rode the Daylight, our DVD will evoke nostalgic memories -- for younger fans, a chance to see train riding at its best!
