NOTE: We have recently learned that Jeff Ainsworth, author and owner of Monte Vista Publishing, passed away on October 16, 2023. For months, we have been unable to obtain Monte Vista books, but now find that his relatives have acquired Monte Vista's inventory making books available to dealers  once again. There will be no new Monte Vista books, but we will continue to sell previous volumes as long as supplies last. We have learned that Pacific Electric volumes 9 and 10 are now available. We will put them up on our web site when received.

UNION PACIFIC'S YUMA SUBDIVISION

Widescreen: $25.95 USD
Blu-ray: $25.95 USD

Running nearly 200 miles between Colton, California and Yuma, Arizona, the Yuma Subdivision is a part of the former Southern Pacific’s Sunset Route, which today serves the Union Pacific as an important rail corridor. It is part of the second Transcontinental Railroad built in the late nineteenth century connecting southern California with Arizona, Texas, Louisiana, and Mexico.  

The Yuma Subdivision is a diverse piece of railroad with steep mountain grades and high-speed desert running. It climbs over  Beaumont Hill through San Timoteo Canyon and drops down along the shore of the Salton Sea at an elevation of 204 feet below sea level. It races over the arid desert to a meeting with the Colorado River at the Arizona State line.  

This busy piece of railroad is double-tracked primarily, seeing several high-priority intermodal trains along with manifests traveling to and from West Colton Yard. Long stack trains with DPU and manned helpers out of Indio dig in for the climb over San Gorgonio Pass.  

Join us for this fantastic adventure over Beaumont Hill and along the Salton Sea!
