SOUTHERN PACIFIC STEAM ANTHOLOGY

This new release documents steam power on the length and breadth of the mighty Southern Pacific empire at the middle of the last century. See every locomotive wheel arrangement that ever rolled on SP track. This title replaces "Southern Pacific Steam 1890-1960" with improved picture and sound.

DAYLIGHT ON TEHACHAPI

A genuine Daylight locomotive with an authentic 15 car train in real Daylight colors makes an historic 5 day outing roaring from Portland, Oregon to Los Angeles. The climb over Tehachapi Pass is filmed with plenty of dramatic helicopter coverage. We see it all: Caliente Horseshoe, the Great Loop, and climbing Soledad Summit without diesels. A Southern Pacific rail fan’s dream come true!

THE SP DAYLIGHTS: AS THEY WERE

Daylight locomotive history in the ‘40s & ‘50s includes The Coast and Valley Daylights. Daylight GS 6 #4460 crosses the Sierras in 1958 in what was intended to be the last movement of steam anywhere on the SP system. Then #4449 brings Daylight engines back to life in 1981! 

NARROW GAUGE EAST OF THE SIERRA

Discover the fabled narrow gauge steam trains of the Southern Pacific which once crossed the desert reaches and carried silver from the mines on the eastern side of the Sierras down California’s Owens Valley. The entire line as it still survived in 1960 is covered, including stations, bridges, water tanks, and turntables. A gem.
