Review of At the Throttle Cab Ride V1 Los Angeles to San Bernardino DVD

 3.6 of 5 (9)
At the Throttle Cab Ride Volume 1 (DVD Video)


The San Bernardino Subdivision Los Angeles to San Bernardino

With the camera secured to the front of an eastbound stack train and the scenic landscapes of the BNSF San Bernardino Subdivision stretching before you, you're at the throttle and about to experience a train ride like no other! In this show, you'll get a truly unique, railroader's perspective of the 65 miles between Hobart Yard in Los Angeles and the city of San Bernardino.

Beginning with an early departure on a beautiful spring day in 2008, you'll leave Hobart Yard, cautiously observing the 10-mile per hour speed limit until the entire train is on the mainline and the engineer can bring the heavy train up to speed. Running southeast past Pico Rivera, Los Nietos Junction, and La Mirada to Fullerton, you'll get to observe
