Enjoy a head-end ride aboard a mile and a half long train of coal empties on the Indiana Rail Road from Newton, Illinois to Terre Haute, Indiana with multiple cameras on-board. This is a two part series, and in this volume, Newton to Riverton, you’ll ride the Illinois segment for this train from the power plant, to the Indiana border at the Wabash River. Don’t be fooled that Illinois is flat. This is a very hilly section, and the railroad has one stretch of 3 percent grade.
The audio is just as interesting as the video. We placed microphones on the exterior of the units, and you’ll enjoy great natural sound as your train roars alone (there is no sound from the interior of the locomotive cab).
