Product Description: 

In the high country of central Oregon, Union Pacific trains sprint along the east side of the Cascade Mountains on a route originally run by the Southern Pacific. In Part 2 of this series, we follow the Cascade Subdivision for 108 miles between Cascade Summit and Klamath Falls. With easy grades and gentle curves, this is a racetrack with speeds of up to 60mph for freight and 80mph for passengers. Manifest trains head south with lumber from the Pacific Northwest. Doublestacks, grain, crude oil trains, the Gilchrist Local, and Amtrak's Coast Starlight head back and forth through the beautiful countryside. Adding to the mix of traffic, BNSF runs via trackage rights between Chemult and Klamath Falls. In addition to the flow of trains, witness a Jordan Spreader at work pushing the snow banks between winter storms. See new Tier 4 GEVOS making their first revenue runs over the Cascade Line, plus Canadian Pacific, Amtrak heritage power, and a GE center cab switcher at work on the Klamath Northern.
