Travel along with C. Vision Productions as we tour the Canadian Pacific’s River Subdivision in eastern Minnesota. The River Sub is an ex-Milwaukee Road main line that travels along the western banks of the Mississippi River from St. Paul to La Crescent. This magnificent area is full of beauty and nature, which provides numerous photo opportunities.
The River Sub handles many different types of trains from the Canadian Pacific. Adding to the mix, I & M Rail Link trains operate over the River Sub via trackage rights on its St. Paul to Kansas City route. Amtrak’s “Empire Builder” uses this line for its route between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest. Coal trains delivered to the C.P. by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe retain BNSF power adding to the mix. Plus, see Soo Line locomotives in charge of trains as they once were before Canadian Pacific purchased the Soo.
Bluffs, valleys, bald eagles, barges and trains…the River Sub has it all! Experience railroad action from a different landscape that the Midwest has to offer. All of this and more in “Canadian Pacific, Along the Mighty Mississippi”.
