Southern Pacific 1941


Southern Pacific 1941

It's a trip through time on the legendary Southern Pacific. It's the excitement of steam captured forever in this spectacular color video. It's Southern Pacific 1941, exclusively from Video Rails.

This meticulously crafted video documentary was produced from rare 16mm color films professionally shot between 1937 and 1941 by cinematographer James Orem. Thrill to the full power of original sound brilliantly re-recorded in Hi-Fi Stereo.

Witness scenes of S.P. steam locomotives including 0-6-0, 0-8-0, 2-8-0, 2-8-2, 4-6-2, 4-8-2, and 2-10-2's in action in San Francisco, Oakland Roseville and the Sierra Mountains.

Treat yourself to this magnificent moment of railroad history.
