Officially this is the St. Joseph Subdivision of the Lincoln Division, but depending on what end of the line you start from, folks called it the Kansas City Line or the St. Joe Line. Our guide, Bob Ernst, knew the 202 miles from KC to Lincoln as the St. Joe Line. We are seeing a still independent Burlington Northern in 1994. BN was hungry for power and so we see various leased locomotives head up many of the trains.
This informative program is narrated, and many locations and trains are marked with on-screen captions.
This program was shot using professional equipment of the time, but is not up to the clarity of today’s high-definition video. It is however an excellent snapshot of an important time and place in the nation’s railroad history.
