I Wish I Were An Eagle

February 24, 2015

Union Pacific has just released a short video entitled “I wish I were an eagle”. It’s a tribute to generations of railroad families and the little ones that want to follow the tradition.

The star of the video is a short train led by SD70ACe’s 8838 and 8708 filmed in a breathtaking array of aerial shots as it traversed the Columbia River Gorge. The other 3-4 trains in the video seemingly had all EMD power, heavy on SD70ACe’s.

It’s worth 2 1/2 minutes of your time, especially in full-screen HD.

    It’s amazing as to views one can get with a drone to get air views of trains, especially when terrain limits view at ground level…
