 Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950's

C. Vision Productions presents the Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950’s in the San Joaquin Valley of California from the films of Doctor Wayland Paul Matt.  Doctor Matt was a railroad doctor for both the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific in Bakersfield California during the 1950’s and 60’s.  This gave him the opportunity to photograph many steam locomotives in the west.

This spectacular footage includes many of S.P.’s steamers including Cab Forwards, GS-4’s, Baldwin F-4’s, F-5’s, C-9’s, SP built 'Mountain' MT-4’s, Baldwin narrow gauge 4-6-0 number 18 and much more!

You will see these great steam locomotives in charge of both passenger and freight trains in the San Joaquin Valley of California with many shots pacing trains on Highway 99 near Bakersfield.  We also visit Tehachapi Loop and great action from the yard in Bakersfield.  Also included is the narrow gauge line in the Owens Valley with ex-Nevada California Oregon Baldwin number 18!  We even see workers transferring ties from a standard gauge car to a narrow gauge car in Owenyo.

Take yourself back to the final years of steam operations on the Southern Pacific.  Great memories are captured in Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950’s!
