Review of At the Throttle Cab Ride V3 Train Meets DVD

 4.5 of 5 (6)
Train Meets

Welcome to Volume 3 of At the Throttle. With our camera mounted on the lead engine of a BNSF train, we ll take to the rails to bring you a spectacular and unique perspective of railroading like no other! Volume 3 is dedicated to train meets, the exciting encounter of two opposing trains traveling on parallel tracks. You ll travel throughout Southern California to experience meets with freight, commuter, and passenger trains at a variety of locations, including the Alameda Corridor and the BNSF'sSan Bernardino and Cajon Subdivisions.

This is no conventional cab ride. As you travel the rails, you ll view meets from many intriguing angles. Our camera is sometimes mounted at the wheel, on the coupler, at the front of the cab, even on top of the engine! These images were not only shot during daylight; there are many fascinating night scenes as well. You ll see meets with Union Pacific, KCS, BNSF trains and Amtrak'sSouthwest Chief and Pacific Surfliner, plus a drag
