Review of Union Pacifics Cascade Sub Part I and II 2 DVD Set 7idea

 4.7 of 5 (6)
Union Pacific's Cascade Sub Part I:
Eugene to Cascade Summit

In this premiere release from 7idea Productions, you'll travel though Oregon's scenic Cascade Mountain Range along the former Southern Pacific line. Now operated by the Union Pacific, the Cascade Line is still a vital link between the Pacific Northwest and California. Part I of this two-part video series covers the 113 miles of track between Eugene, Oregon and Cascade Summit. The railroad climbs 4,422 feet in elevation in the process. Railroaders refer to this line as ?The Hill? and you will see why. Numerous tunnels, rock sheds, bridges, horse shoe curves and 40 miles of 1.6% gradient winding though thick mountain forests makes this a place you'll not soon forget. You will witness heavy manifests with manned and DPU helpers shoving hard! Catch piggyback trains and Amtrak's Coast Starlight at several locations. Many trains are identified by their symbols and you will learn where they originated and where they are go
