Review of Along the Feather River - BNSF and Union Pacific on former Western Pacific rails DVD


Nine days of charging up and down the Canyon went into this tape, they weren't running many trains! Sometimes it was hard to tell just who the railroad belonged to, BNSF has trackage rights and sent everything they had, and of course UP is a mix of UP, SP, and CNW, plus leased power, a veritable rainbow of color. We covered the line from Oroville to Portola, including the horseshoe at James, the bridges at Pulga, Rock CreeK, Keddie, Clio and lots more. Serpentine Canyon is just a photographers delight, and we got some shots at the RR Museum at Portola. Caught some rock dumping and MOW for a little variety.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good

2 Star Fair
