This program begins in San Jose, California, and works the way up to Oakland. Many commuter trains with Pacific's are seen, as well as war-time black Daylights, Cab Forward's, 4-8-2's, and smaller power on locals. Then divert to the Altamont Pass line and see several Cab Forward articulateds, and even a 4-10-2 leading one train. Then continue to Oakland and see some trains around San Francisco before heading eastward along San Pablo Bay, then visit the San Ramos Branch and see some old film of smaller branch line operations.

Next is a Daylight section with a variety of films of Daylight trains in action, mostly with Daylight paint. Next, move to a segment that is east of Los Angeles and includes a lot of 30's and 1940's material mostly on the line to El Paso. Next you'll see a variety of various SP images before closing out the show with several scenes of 4-6-2 2467 en route to Sacramento in 1999, and with 2472 at Hunters Point in 2001.

There is something for everyone in this show, especially if you like SP Steam!
