Two great cab rides from the 1990s. 1) Ride with a CNW crew on a SD40-2 and then catch a ride on a GP30 on the Noble Rock shortline.
Chicago and North Western, From the Cab
Join us as we ride along in the cab of Chicago and North Western SD40 dash 2 #6814 on a typical run from Belle Fourche to Rapid City, South Dakota. This video incorporates all natural sound, with no narration, to get a “being there” effect of a day’s work in the cab. The trip begins in Belle Fourche, operating over 10 mile per hour tracks before reaching 40 miles per hour on ribbon rail south of St. Onge. We see local work being done and experience the ride into Rapid City. 45 minutes
Shortline Railroading, From the Cab
Come along as C. Vision Productions rides the Nobles Rock Railroad in southwestern Minnesota. This is shortline railroading at its best! We ride along with the crew as they haul loaded grain hoppers from Luverne to the interchange track with the BNSF at Manley. Our cameras also capture the engineer working the throttle and brakes of the train in a GP-30 locomotive, as it progresses over the 10 mile per hour tracks. And that’s not all! Take a ride on the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern’s 10th Anniversary Employee Special Train from Aurora to Arlington, South Dakota! You will not only get to view the scenery from the cab of the locomotive, but also from the three passenger cars as well.
