Climb aboard a hot Burlington Northern Santa Fe vehicle train for a ride across southeastern Kansas and discover what the route looks like from the perspective of the operating crews! Boarding train V-OKCMCI at the crew change point in Arkansas City, you’ll experience a fascinating journey across the Sunflower state. This important BNSF route connects KC with Texas, the Southwest, and California. The 225-mile run covers part of the Arkansas City Sub, the entire Douglas Sub, and most of the Emporia Subdivision to Argentine Yard. Fast-paced running and efficient dispatching often result in crews completing the journey in under 5 1/2 hours. From the train and from trackside you’ll enjoy fantastic views of the rolling prairie under clear October skies. Along the way all types of trains are observed on this busy route including piggybacks, stacks, vehicle, grain, coal, and even Triple Crown RoadRailers.

An in-depth look at the busy Flint Hill region near Matfield Green provides extensive coverage of the area. This 16-mile stretch of the Emporia Sub climbs and curves through scenic hills, making it visually interesting but also an operational bottleneck. So sit back and get ready to enjoy an entertaining ride across America’s heartland – you’re Going to Kansas City!

    First, let me start off by stating I LOVE the ATSF, I LIKED the BN and I LOATHE the BNSF!!!

    OK, now that is off my chest, let me state that this is a GREAT video! Shot during the BNSF “Rainbow Era” of locomotive paint schemes I loved the ATSF/BN locomotive lash ups across the Flint Hills of Kansas. The Flint Hills are BEAUTIFUL and it is difficult to capture how large and beautiful they are on video but this one does a great job….and there’s even trains running through them! I love how this video PERFECTLY mixes the cab ride from OUR-KANSAS City to Kansas City with passing shots of trains. The then-new solid AUTO MAX train is shown as well as the Norfolk Southern Triple Crown Roadrailers going to Fort Worth with auto parts. This video has enough ATSF in it to be a GREAT production! 😀

    Of all the pentrex cab rides, this video is the one that shows what really goes on in the cab, you get to see he conductor and engineer making plans and communicating with the dispatchers and yardmasters. Pentrex combined a lot of ground footage and maps which adds another element to the video. Very well worth the buy.

    A excellent movie of the Southeast region of Kansas. There is cab rides along with on ground coverage. The territory covered tells a good story, giving the railfan the desire to want to travel to the region and see it for one’s self. One of my top 50 in my collection.

    This is the best Pentrex carbide you will ever see. Very well done narration, great angles from inside the train (none of that staring at dizzying train tracks crap) and well supplemented and transitioned to ground shots. There is really nothing wrong with this show.

    This was Pentrex’s first foray into the DVD world. Great video showing what its like to ride in the cab of one of todays big diesel engines. With ground shots mixed in and good narration, makes for a really good video.
