Description

Running through the wide open, rolling terrain of Central Nebraska’s Sand Hills region is one of Burlington Northern Santa Fe’s busiest main lines. The Wyoming coal boom has transformed this former CB&Q route into a major corridor for moving “black diamonds” to eastern markets. High priority freight and intermodal traffic to the Pacific Northwest also polish these rails.

Many different types of locomotives are seen on this line. Most coal is pulled by SD70MACs, with older power including C30-7s, SD60Ms, SD40-2s and leased Oakway SD60s seen on occasion. The non-coal trains also include a variety of motive power from GE Dash 9-44CWs to EMD GP30s! Every train in this fascinating video is identified with its symbol, origin, and destination.

  1. 5 out of 5 Great BNSF action.

    This is a neat video, that provides a great time capsule for the BNSF and BN SD70MACs. you also see many C30-7s leading trains and a couple SD60Ms, SD40-2s and SD60s. If you are a fan of train horns, this tape wont be for you, but if you high quality 1990s pentrex and the early BNSF, this show will be great for you. trains running through the scenic Nebraska landscape of the Sand Hills. This tape feels a bit more real than many of their nearly perfect productions, as many backlit scenes are included. one scene where they wait for multiple trains to pass one train on a siding, gives you the feel of spending a day trackside. Even a red and silver warbonnet or two will be found in the show. This show is worthy.

  2. 5 out of 5 GREAT FOR COAL TRAIN LOVERS AT A GREAT PRICE!!!

    I love the fact that this shows COAL TRAINS (lots of them) many with BN power at the very beginning of the BNSF! Now that coal trains are becoming an endangered commodity in this country this video is a great historical reference and fun to watch!

  3. 5 out of 5 Lots of Coal

    A great video on the region represented. Pentrex did a fine job showing a nice variety of power and trains. Lots of coal (of course), with a few high priority manifests on the run. Very enjoyable. A great addition to my collection
