Featuring the SOUTH BAY
The San Francisco Bay Area has a lot to offer when it comes to railroading! In this show, the first in a series featuring Bay Area Rails, we will explore the South Bay using San Jose as our hub. Amtrak, Caltrain, Altamont Commuter Express (ACE), Union Pacific, BNSF, and several tourist railroads all operate here.
Youíll get a chance to explore parts of UPís Coast Subdivision, Niles Subdivision, Oakland Subdivision, Warm Springs Subdivision, and other areas. Youíll travel to Watsonville Junction and follow the Davenport and Hollister locals, which originate from here. A few side trips will bring you to the Niles Canyon Railway, the Santa Cruz, Big Trees & Pacific Railway, and the Roaring Camp & Big Trees Narrow Gauge Railroad. The variety of motive power youíll witness on the freights include DRGW GP40-2ís and the newest MP36PH-3C pulling Caltrainís Baby Bullets. With the number of commuter trains, freights, and locals that travel through the heart of Silicon Valley, youíll see there really is some great railroading action here!
