To railroaders, the Midwest means nonstop action with plenty of variety. Volume 1 takes you to Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa, South Dakota, and Minnesota to sample the finest in Midwestern railroading. The Class 1 railroads provide heavy traffic and high-speed excitement. Among these are Kansas City Southern, Union Pacific, Illinois Central, and Burlington Northern Santa Fe. Motive power ranges from Illinois Central GP10s to the latest EMD and General Electric AC locomotives on Union Pacific. There’s even a rare EMD BL20-2.

Regional railroads are becoming increasingly important in the Midwest. You’ll see the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern with its intriguing mix of power and will catch one of its passenger specials. Shortlines provide a vital link between shippers and trunk lines. We visit the Nebraska Northeastern, Sisseton Milbank, Dakota & Iowa, Nobles Rock, and the Ellis & Eastern. Each has its own personality and interesting locomotive roster. From shortlines to the high iron, a rich and colorful mosaic of railroading is yours to enjoy in The Best of the Midwest Volume One.

    In Volume 1 there is a ton of fallen flag colors, unique shortlines, and a great variety of diesels both new and old. There is plenty of mainline action on the union pacific with some Chicago & Northwestern action, BNSF with Burlington Northern Cascade Green Units, and some quickies on the KCS, Illinois Central, and Canadian National. Plus there are lots of interesting shortlines with loads of unfamiliar paint schemes.
