Great BNSF and CP train action across the Bakken Oil Fields in scenic Northwestern North Dakota. See long crude oil unit trains as they travel across the beautiful North Dakota prairies and come rolling through several small towns and cities. Plus other exciting train action including unit trains of frac sand, grain and intermodal along with road freights and locals.

The BNSF Railway dominates the train action on Volume One along with a good amount of Canadian Pacific trains and a few of Amtrak’s passenger trains. This program also features the spectacular Gassman Coulee Trestle, a few historic depots and the train action hot spot of Minot which includes Soo Tower where the main lines of the BNSF and CP cross at grade. Also see some oil wells and drilling rigs in the Bakken Formation where the oil cans are filled and sent out by rail to the refineries across the U.S. Rail footage era September, 2014.

    The “oil cans” are the stars, but this program has a little bit of everything — big power, a variety of consists, dramatic scenery and a fascinating look at the oil operations of the Bakken Formation. BNSF is in the spotlight in the first part of this two-program series, with a number of Canadian Pacific trains included as well (CP is the featured railroad in Part 2, with some additional BNSF trains and nice footage of two regional railroads). As always, Plets Express’ videography is top-notch, and there’s just the right amount of interesting, informative narration. Two great additions to any collection!

    If you like oil trains and open prairie land….. this is for you. The BNSF & CPR put on a great show. But not all open land as the video also makes a stop in Minot North Dakota with some great action at SOO Tower, the diamond where the CPR north to Saskatchewan crosses the BNSF. Also other trains like intermodals, and general manifests are seen. Throw in some Amtrak as well makes for a great video.
