Cool video, thanks for posting. There was an article on the Arrowhead branch and water trains a few years ago in the Southern Pacific Historical & Technical Society magazine, the Trainline. Neat to see some video of a train.

Very rare film! I relate to the boy on the bicycle- don't we all want to be him, pacing the train?

This was at the time of initial dismantleing of Santa Fe's Redlands loop branch.  Breaking the loop between Highland Jct. and Del Rosa.  Wag.

Fantastic video! Thanks again for posting such treasures.  I frequently drive across Electric Ave and always imagine seeing trains running down the line.
