Santa Fe’s Marceline Sub runs between two storied Santa Fe locations, Argentine Yard at Kansas City and the Mississippi River crossing and yard at Fort Madison, Iowa. In this program we will take a look at that entire 217 mile stretch of Railroad. We’ll see “Q” trains and “T” trains and lots of Warbonnets. Amtrak makes several appearances.
This program is informatively narrated, and many locations and trains are marked with on-screen captions.
This program was shot using professional equipment of the time, but is not up to the clarity of today’s high-definition video. It is however an excellent snapshot of an important time and place in the nation’s railroad history.
