Review of Espee Hall of Fame DVD

 4.7 of 5 (3)
Visit "Espee" locations that were in and around Sacramento, CA in the early 1990s. See Elvas and Stockton Junction with the towers that have long ago been removed.

Watch hours of great, original Southern Pacific power that has been sent to the scrap yard since this material was shot.

Learn much of the history of the SP and the area involved in this video.

The emphasis here is on manifest trains, transfer jobs and locals. We bring the kind of railroading that has been forgotten.

See Davis and Suisun-Fairfield Junction and many trains on the Ione branch. Don't miss the sugar beets to Woodland, California.

This video took years to shoot with nearly every scene in blue skies and with the sun's light on the right side of the train.

The trains shown have been selected with care to tell a story and portray how things once were. After watching this video, you should have a better understanding of what happened to the "Espee" - and why it happened.
