Sierra Shortlines Vol. 2 • DVD • 62 mins • colour and B&W • dubbed sound
Fabulous DVD of archive film of the Yosemite Valley Railroad, which closed in 1945, the 3’ gauge Nevada County Narrow Gauge Railroad which closed in 1940, and the Hetch Hetchy Dam Railroad which was lifted in 1949. The shorter Amador Central Railroad is seen somewhat later, using a 1200 hp Baldwin diesel. As if this is not enough, there is also detail footage of the Yosemite Sugar Pine Lumber Company’s operations, including its spectacular 67% incline down to the YVR!
A veritable hour long feast of long-gone delights; treat yourself!
