Alicia's mom lives down south near Paso Robles Ca on the SP Coast Line, so we don't see her very often as it's about a 4 hour drive. She does come up for the holidays though and each Christmas, since her Dad was a CB&Q Engineer, she always looks for something train related for me as Christmas Gifts. This Christmas though, she nailed a slam dunk. She went to a train shop in Atascadero (I wasn't even aware there WAS one in Atascadero) and bought me "Union Pacific Vintage West" on DVD from Charles Smiley Presents. I haven't seen many Pentrex videos I really liked much, but every Chrales Smiley video I have seen was top notch. This one has special coverage of the UP-WP merger and was PERFECT for my railroad tastes. Charles Smiley Presents Apparently, she was at the shop and called Alicia and asked her which railroad I liked and Alicia told her I was mainly into the WP, so when she saw the WP logo on the cover, she picked that one. It's really a great DVD, it is ALL color and features 2-8-2's, 4-6-6-4's, 4-12-2's in helper service, Both types of UP turbines, PA-1's, SD-24's, GP-9's, 20's, 30's, and 35's, DD-45's, DD-40's, Cabless units of all types, Alco switchers, SD40-2's, and of course all types of old WP power. It even has footage from Pacific Electric, Sacramento Northern and Key System, and features the old SN detour trains running on the ATSF out of Stockton to get to US Steel in Pittsburg, CA. It's the best video I have in my small RR video collection. There's even footage from the old Rock Island and Milwaukee roads. Several clips of old Mopac, this video rocks.
