Review of Santa Fe Into L.A. DVD

 4.7 of 5 (6)
Travel back to 1994, prior to the Santa Fe merger with Burlington Northern, and explore Santa Fe's San Bernardino Subdivision in Southern California. Most of the trains you'll see here are pulled by pure sets of Santa Fe power, both Super Fleet locomotives in gorgeous red-and-silver Warbonnet paint and units in classic Santa Fe blue-and-yellow colors as well. The motive power is diverse and includes GP60M, GP60B, GP50, GP39-2, GP30, GP20, GP9, SD45-2, SDF40-2, the rare 7400-class Dash 8-40B, Dash 8-40BW, and Dash 9-44CW.

Complete coverage of the San Bernardino Subdivision begins at San Bernardino and continues to Hobart Yard in Los Angeles. A scenic highlight is the single-track segment through Santa Ana Canyon, at a time when grading for two additional main tracks was underway. Trackage-rights trains are also featured. These include Union Pacific freights between San Bernardino and West Riverside, plus Amtrak and Metrolink passenger trains between Fullerton and Los Angeles. Thi
