Review of Sierra Pacific Lines Pasadena Model Railroad DVD

 4 of 5 (2)
In 1990, Pentrex visited one of America's finest HO Scale model railroads, the "Sierra Pacific Lines" of the Pasadena (California) Model Railroad Club. The superb quality viewers have come to depend on in our railroad shows can be found in our look at this beautifully crafted and realistically operated model railroad.

The "Sierra Pacific Lines" is immense. The railroad occupies a 5000-square-foot room. Thirty thousand feet of code 100 steel rail has been laid on 500,000 crossties totaling over 10,000 feet of hand-laid track. Twenty-seven people are needed to operate the railroad including ten cab operators.

Get lost in the realistic world of model railroading as we follow a unit tank train over the railroad. Along the way there will be meets with many other trains, both freight and passenger, powered by steam or diesel, including a ribbon rail train. At Midway, helpers are added to our train for the two percent climb up Powderhorn. You'll forget this is a model railroad a
