Review of Stockton Interlocking Tower - The End of an Era DVD

The Stockton Tower was one of the last remaining towers in California. Built in 1943 this interlocking tower guided trains through the busy Stockton area for over five decades. The tower operator provides a guided tour of how the interlocking functioned. A BNSF engineer working on the change over takes us on a tour of the "tin house" that replaced the tower.<p>On May 27, 1999, the 56 year old tower was demolished thus ending an era. Our photographers were there for several weeks to watch all the action for the change over.
