UNION PACIFIC'S CIMA SUBDIVISION

UNION PACIFIC'S CIMA SUBDIVISION

22.00

California's Mojave Desert is the driest place in North America. It ranges in elevation from over 11,000 feet in the Spring Mountains, to 282 feet below sea level in Death Valley. Through this seemingly barren land, a mainline railroad charts a course connecting Salt Lake City with the rich ports of Southern California. It is known as Union Pacific's Cima Subdivision.

Covering the western portion of the San Pedro, Los Angeles and Salt Lake Railroad, the Cima Subdivision runs for 173 miles between Yermo, California and Las Vegas, Nevada. Various intermodal trains race between Chicago and Southern California. Coal trains lumber over the steel rails along with heavy manifests for Salt Lake City, North Platte, and West Colton. Auto rack and ethanol tank trains add to the interesting mix of traffic.

Following the Mojave River, the rails pass through the amazing features of Afton Canyon then race across the dunes to the oasis of Kelso. Next comes the stiff 2.2% climb over Cima Hill. Draw bars strain as big diesels dig in for the nineteen mile pull to the summit. Crossing into Nevada, trains leave the lonely desert behind as they roll among the lights of Las Vegas.

This program was shot in March and April of 2018.

Run Time: 1 hour 58 minutes * WIDESCREEN DVD

Journey to Promontory

Journey to Promontory

The first transcontinental railroad was a wonder when it was built in 1869. Stretching 1,776 miles between Omaha, Neb., and Sacramento, Calif., it linked the nation. Join us for this look at the railroad that Abraham Lincoln launched; the difficult construction project through mountains and across plains that thousands of Chinese and Irish immigrants built; and the immense task that was marked on May 10, 1869 with a Golden Spike driven at a lonely place in the Utah desert called Promontory and celebrations around the country following a simple telegraph message - Done!

SD40-2 Survivors Vol 4

SD40-2 Survivors Vol 4

21.00

In January 1972, EMD introduced the SD40-2. This locomotive and its 645 prime mover have operated on railroads for nearly 50 years. Once superior main line power, it has been overtaken by more efficient computerized engines. Trains featured in this program all have SD40-2's leading in all kinds of Class One service from the years 2017 to 2018.

Volume 4 includes all new footage of Union Pacific 40's in both transfer and main line service. We even catch one of Canadian Pacific's rebuilt 40's along with a couple trains led with CSX and NS SD40-2's. Canadian National gave us some great opportunities in this time period with both their SD40-2 and SD40-2W's. The star of the show is BNSF, as they continued to run nine of their 40's on the main lines in Minnesota. On several occasions, BNSF added a cabless GP38-2B in between a pair of 40's for a rare A-B-A consist! On a couple other occasions, BNSF pulled a train with 4 SD40-2's!

If you enjoy seeing these old timers still pulling high speed trains on class one rails, this video will keep you entertained for years to come! SD40-2 Survivors, Volume 4 continues the series of awesome EMD action!
