    Long time ago I told my wife that I would like to have a DVD from Tehachapi, from Cajun and from Feather River, and then yesterday she asked me if I could be more specific, just in case Santa is gonna bring me one, so now I'm looking on the internet.... but which one should I get, it's not easy. Does anyone know of any movies to stay away from? (waste of money).

    Don't know if you're looking for movies about trains or movies with trains in them, but check out this thread that ran a few weeks ago here:train movies of note

    How recent do you want your footage?

    American Railroad Media www.americanrailroadmedia.com has a video out titled Tehachapi 2000, msrp $29.95

    Pentrex has a video out titled "Cajon Pass / Tehachapi Loop" that has a copyright date of 1986, so you can figure that it was shot in 1985 and earlier. Cost msrp: $49.95

    "Trains on Location" from Trains Magazine has videos of both Tehachapi and Cajon. Cost msrp $29.95

    If you can find it I would reccomemd the video "The Battle for Donner Pass" orginally produced by Video Rails. It is now in the Pentrex catalog. It shows the snowfighting over Donner Pass during the winter of 1992-1993.
