Review of Amtrak the Surfliner and Amtrak Surfline Cab Ride DVD

 4.3 of 5 (9)
One of the most scenic stretches of railroad track in the West follows the blue Pacific coastline between Los Angeles and San Diego. Known as the Surfline, this famous route was filmed in detail by Video Rails in the mid-1990s. The resulting two videos have now been combined on one DVD to bring you all the historic sites, exquisite scenery, and railroading action you look for. Included on this DVD are:

Amtrak - The Surfline
Our journey begins at Los Angeles Union Passenger Terminal and heads south to San Diego. You'll stop at each station along the Surfline route to see the unique features of these historic boarding points, including the lovely San Juan Capistrano station. Highlights of your tour feature views of the famous Carlsbad wooden trestles, interesting motive power including Amtrak's Dash 8-32 BWH, Santa Fe freight action, and the fantastic oceanfront scenery found along the Surfline!
