Review of Southern California Rail Journal 2008 DVD

 5 of 5 (2)
Come with Pentrex on a railfan's journey throughout Southern California. This innovative visual journal begins in June 2008 and continues through late December, with each scene featuring all new footage of trains presented in the same order in which they were filmed. Our railfan journalist is a California native with a keen eye for great locations. He'll take us through Los Angeles, Orange, Kern, San Bernardino, and Riverside counties to share the mighty railroading action this area offers.

Among the thrills waiting for you are former Santa Fe 3751 running on the San Bernardino Sub at night under a full head of steam; Amtrak's Coast Starlight making several detours over Tehachapi; an Amtrak meet with a freight on Soledad Canyon; and UP's specially painted George HW Bush locomotive leading two Heritage Units in a dazzling rainbow consist over Beaumont Hill. You'll also see visitors from Norfolk Southern, CSX, and Ferromex adding even more color and variety to the show. The Orange
