Tehachapi Cab Ride

Tehachapi Cab Ride

14.00

Although it starts in a grey day in March, 1998, this is a fascinating ride from Bakersfield to Barstow over Tehachapi Pass. Eight units power the Z NBYWSP-9, BNSF's hottest train, with C40-8W #861 on the point. The view is straight ahead from Caliente to Mojave, but with many roving camera shots, especially around the famous loop. The conductor provides information on the line to a trainee. The video was taped by Roy Knighton, a transportation specialist, who has ridden and taped on the head end of a number of trains.

BNSF Railway's KOOTENAI RIVER SUB

BNSF Railway's KOOTENAI RIVER SUB

21.00

Come on an exciting journey through the rugged mountains of northern Idaho and northwestern Montana! BNSF's Kootenai River Subdivision is a busy section of the Northern Transcon running between Sandpoint Junction and Whitefish.

High priority Z trains race between Chicago and the west coast. Stack trains, grain, coal, oil, and mixed merchandise trains run back and forth across the beautiful countryside. This seldom visited line connects two well known railfan hot spots: The Funnel and Marias Pass. It follows the very scenic Kootenai River through the densely forested Cabinet Mountains, allowing trains to sprint along the water level course. Then it's a steady 1% climb through the Salish Range where the thunder of hard-working diesels echoes through the mountains.

The top of the grade is marked by the seven mile long Flathead Tunnel, the second longest in the United States. Modern diesel locomotives are everywhere including GE ES44C4's, GEOVS, Dash 9's, EMD SD70ACe's, SD70MAC's, even SD90/43AC's make an appearance on Union Pacific's nearby Spokane Sub. Great railroading action and fantastic scenery abound in BNSF Railway's Kootenai River Sub!

Shot in stunning hi-definition in the winter, summer and fall of 2013..
