Description

Here is one of the busiest mainlines in the United States, the 500 miles of former Chicago and Northwestern line from Chicago west to Omaha and Fremont. The line handles Chicago commuters as well as transcontinental freight traffic, and we’ll see both in this video, which was done in 1993 before Union Pacific had complete control of the C&NW. There is a wide variety of motive power, ranging from 1950 GP7s to new diesels built in the 1990s. The video was shot during the 1993 flood so we see the California Zephyr detouring over the C&NW with Metra E-units leading the train. We’ll see Proviso yard in Chicago where we visit the hump and container yards, then see commuter action, including a cab ride. You’ll see hot spots like Rochelle, Illinois where the C&NW and BN diamond features loads of action. Then we take you westward through Illinois, and Iowa to the better locations such as Boone, and the Kate Shelly Bridge, and onwards to Missouri Valley where the C&NW splits to go to Omaha or due west to Fremont and the Union Pacific connection.

This video covers 3 complete divisions in 3 states and multiple cameras were used. Over 10 other railroads can be seen during the course of the video, and we even include a couple of historic flashback surprises. This video is actually TWO videos, a 90 minute, and a 60 Minute program contained in one special case for a total of 2 hours and 30 minutes of great action.

  1. 3 out of 5 ehh, good footage

    Well despite this 2 disc set is from Greg Scholl himself, its more of a Railway (Les Jarrett) productions themed program. Why? Because of Eric Greene. Although its a disappointment that John Edward Hingsbergen never narrated this set, it’ll still keep the treasures of 2 notable america by rail producers.
