It’s the late 1980s and locomotives in the black, red and yellow scheme of the recently aborted SPSF merger were abundant along with units in the Santa Fe blue and yellow scheme. In addition, vintage film and photos present a few scenes of the railroad as it was in the 1940s. This program features the railroad as it was just before the reintroduction of the Warbonnet paint scheme.

The first location seen is Holliday Junction, west of Kansas City at Shawnee, Kansas. From there we head east to Marceline, Missouri. Then we continue east to see trains on Edelstein Hill west of Chillicothe, Illinois. The program finishes at Chillicothe, where we see freight trains pausing to change crews and Amtrak’s Southwest Chief stopping for passengers.

    So many great things about this DVD! This is the Santa Fe before the Super Fleet arrived on the scene in 1990. Journey back to see the blue/yellow and Kodachrome schemes on trains in some of the more obscure locations: Holiday, KS, Marceline, MO and Chillicothe, IL. Many trains with cabooses! I love the changing of crews in Marceline and Chillicothe, something that went away in the late 1980s as 2-man crews and longer crew districts became the norm. An added bonus is the ability to watch the rare Strick Leasing Railtrailers (similar to Roadrailers) being tested between KC and Topeka!
