Shasta Route Circa 1950 - Volume 1 DVD
"SP's SHASTA ROUTE, c.1950", Volume 1, features SP's north-south West Coast Route - from the Bay Area to Portland, Oregon -- with its steep grades requiring heavy power and multiple helpers. Special sections on SP's famous cab-forwards and mountain snow fighting are included.
Although Volume 1 is "mostly California', the Siskiyou Line to Grants Pass is covered in detail. The era's fascinating variety of equipment and facilities are shown in profusion - all set against the West's most spectacular scenery!
For those who remember the railroad scene in the late 1940's, this DVD will bring back fond memories. For younger fans, here's a chance to experience the years many consider the golden age of modem American railroading. It was steam's glorious finale -- and the beginning of the revolutionary transition to diesel power. Drawing on talents of some of the west's finest cinematographers, Catenary Video has assembled an unparalleled record in beautiful color, transferred by the finest digital process, and augmented by authentic sound and historically accurate narration. Truly a dazzling show, guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!
