Review of Southwest Big Boy 4014 Sunset Route Cajon Pass DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
It's nothing short of amazing, 5 years ago Big Boy 4014 was a static display in Pomona, California. Less than 1 year ago, she was in pieces in Cheyenne, Wyoming. Now we see 4014 under her own power in California and along the former Southern Pacific Sunset Route! When the 1.2 million pound, 7,000 horsepower Big Boy climbs Cajon Pass, you know it! We catch her at Mormon Rocks and other location on Cajon Pass. We then follow her into New Mexico and Arizona, ending with her layover at El Paso, Texas.

This is truly some amazing footage, including drone footage and the song, "Ballad of the Big Boy (Titan of the Wasatch)"! Pentrex has truly outdone themselves with this coverage!

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
