Western Pacific The First 50 Years 1910 to 1960 Volume 2 DVD
Volume Two Features the world-famous California Zephyr. We trace the evolution of the CZ from the Exposition Flyer, Train of Tomorrow, and Burlington Zephyr, through the design of the train to its 1949 inauguration. The halcyon days of rail travel in America are showcased, including dome cars, dining and Pullman services. The 50-year anniversary of WP’s 1910 entry into Oakland with ten wheeler #94 on the point of the Zephyr is shown. Other features include early diesel freights, detours, subsidiaries Sacramento Northern, Tidewater Southern, the CCT and 1939-color footage of Stockton’s Birneys.
Historians and author Ted Benson, Wayne Monger and Evan Werkema did the research necessary to bring the new version to fruition. Former WP Employees Jack Starr, Cathy and Ernie von Ibsch are featured with on-screen interviews. Filmmaker Warren Haack directed the revised program.
The meticulous care, comprehensive research, production quality and attention to detail that make Catenary Video productions products sought after world-wide by both Historians and Railfans are evident in this DVD program.
