We begin our visit to the Waynoka Sub where the sub begins, at Wellington, Kansas, the only crew change location between Kansas City and Amarillo. The line is part of the Santa Fe Transcon and sees heavy and fast freights. We’ll see plenty of intermodal, miles of trailers and lots of Warbonnets.
Between Wellington, Kansas and Waynoka, Oklahoma are 107 miles of railroad. We’ll see every bit of this busy line. 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.
