Amazing footage of the Santa Fe 3751 making a round trip excursion run from Los Angeles Union Station to San Bernardino for the special “San Bernardino Railroad Days Celebration” in 2014.

Following a time honored route from Union Station in Los Angeles through Pasadena to San Bernardino, the Santa Fe 3751 garnered odd stares from motorists not used to seeing this phenomenon racing down the freeway next to them in the fast lane!
