Review of San Timoteo Canyon on the Sunset Route

This is the Union Pacific on the former Southern Pacific's Sunset Route. While the UP is in charge, so short a time after the merger means plenty of Southern Pacific power is still seen.

Scenic locations along the San Timeteo Canyon route include Apex, Beaumont, El Casco, Ordway, Redlands and Hinda. We'll cover the Sunset Route East of Colton and West of Beaumont.

We'll see a nice mix of intermodal, manifests, locals, bare '"table'" trains and auto racks. We'll also see plenty of helpers that aid trains over the continuous 1.2% grade.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor
