OK, cool music, who is the artist on the first two?

I just realized the main engine is missing from the Montreal cars, they must have hauled it away.

Nicely done, I really liked it and your videos make it look easy and smooth..haha..the side mesh stuff is soooo sketchy feeling when you ride over it.

OK Now I really want to do it.

Like Daren said music is great.

Really puts that ride in perspective especially with some of those narrow drop offs OMG

Can't believe how much of a trail there is along the tracks. Those long tunnels are fun. Good choice of train music.

Between the weekly MTB'ers, hikers and undocumented folks out there, yes, there is a clear "trail".

the first one is http://www.lynnehanson.com/bio.html "off this train"...haven't heard of her until looking over the songs on youtube to put with the video.

The second video is by Lotus "Little Train"

Yeah the, metal mesh is a bit sketchy, especially when you see rope holding it up on the Goat Canyon Trestle.

Here's a video of a work crew heading out along the tracks on a locomotive and 89 foot flatcar.

Very interesting..hummm....even in that video dated April 28th 2012 I see the main engine car is gone from the Montreal cabs. The last time I saw the Mexican engine was in Oct 2011. Probably a good thing, people were crapping in the toilet and breaking the windows.

Here's another cool video that looks a bit older. Can I get one of those railroad attachments on my Jeep? :-D

Just drive your Jeep out there, Bob and I saw 2 vehicles driving on the tracks from Dos Cabezas to the trestle. They did not cross the trestle since there was not enough solid surface on either side. They basically drove out there with with one set of wheels on the side dirt and the other set on the tracks.

When was this? My dad used to do that back in the 80's with his old Bronco. I remember one of the tunnels being caved in before reaching the trestle. I don't even want think about the ticket you'd get doing that now.
