  • excellent SP video

    recently while wandering around in my LHS, i decided to pick up some videos. one of the ones i bought was Beaumont Hill by Video Rails.

    let me tell you, it is an excellent video. it shows the SP operations over Beaumont Hill in southern California, starting at Colton yard and showing the line all the way to Indio. it is the best video i have! it shows cars being humped in the yard, tracks being repaired after a flash flood, and tons of locomotives from the SP, SSW, D&RGW, and a bunch of leased units. I think the video was filmed in the eairly 1990's. after the D&RGW merger, but before the UP merger.

    i would definately recommend this video to all SP lovers

        Does anyone know if Beaumont Hills was released on DVD? Trying to get away from tapes if possible.

          I can narrow the video's probable release date down to between mid-1993 and late 1995, although its footage may have been shot earlier. (Bill Lambert always had a tendency to hoard footage for future releases.) I wrote the narration for the company's videos from late '89 to early '93 -- and even though Bill had me working on so many simultaneous projects I couldn't remember my own name half the time, I'm pretty sure I'd remember that one -- while Video Rails ceased operations by late '95. Hence my reasoning for the probable release date.
