Three electric lines in one video. The Sacramento Northern, Southern Pacific Red Trains and the Peninsular Railway. We bring the SP ferry boats on the San Francisco Bay as well. This 1910 to 1957 history has been a favorite of rail-fans and historians.

Our scenes in Oakland, Berkeley and the Oakland Hills plus Sacramento Northern lines out to Contra Costa County are the essential Eastbay of a by-gone era. See the SN's ferryboat that linked the south-end to the north-end carrying entire trains, both passenger and freight, from Chips to Mallard. The Sacramento Northern freight trains and the interchange with the electric Oakland terminal line at 40th & Shafter yard may very well be the best ever!

Follow several freights through the Oakland Hills, Montclair, the long tunnel and through Redwood Canyon to Moraga. From there we run out to Walnut Creek, Concord and the ?subway? crossing under Santa Fe and SP tracks.

To quote a review in Railfan & Railroad magazine, 'The 16mm film used in this program was shot by almost 20 photographers and ranges from very-good to excellent. This is another excellent and highly educational program from this producer.'

To quote a review in Model Railroad News, "He takes old 8 and 16mm film and spins it into gold'. If you're not already a traction fan, this video may push you over the edge!"
