CHARLES SMILEY 1 hour 35 minutes
This was the Southern Pacific at work on the Yuma District of the Sunset Route. The best material from our discontinued video, Sunset Salutes, is combined with a wealth of newly discovered material to make this new DVD video. See mixed freights and _intermodal trains as well as locals and transfer freights. We also bring lots of foreign and pool-power. Visit the Imperial Valley lines to remember the Sugarbeet trains of the SP. Learn how the beet cars were loaded and follow the beets to Betteravia where they were processed at the Holly sugar plant. Beet trains handed off to the SMV Railroad at Guadalupe, CA are covered from the 1970s and 1992. And don't miss a cab ride on the SP-owned Carriso Gorge line just before hurricane Kathleen closed it to through traffic in 1976.
