The Herington Sub has a long history: Rock Island, Cotton Belt/Southern Pacific and now Union Pacific. But, in 1993 the line between Kansas City and Herington, Kansas was solid Southern Pacific territory.

We’ll see a variety of motive power, from home-grown SP and SSW units to oddities like the “Kodachrome” paint scheme from the failed Southern Pacific/Santa Fe merger. Foreign road power makes many appearances. And we’ll see plenty of Union Pacific traffic as the SP shared the UP line via trackage rights from KC to Topeka. 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 in the nation’s railroad history. The DVD is divided into over 70 chapters allowing quick access to various program sections.

  1. Lloyd.

    Southern Pacific fans will love this one. SP at it’s best on the American plains. Cotton Belts still appear occassionally, as does SSW. Those ugly engines from what was to be SP/SF can be seen. All working hard to show that SP still had life into one of the US’s great railroad cities (KC). And UP has an appearance also with other foreign power. A fine video of what is now a fallen flag, but still in heavy use this day. The picture quality is not the standards of 2018, but it does not have to be in order to be enjoyed. The content is very important and this video has great content on the SP.

    It is nice to see the Southern Pacific back where it should be… on the Herington Sub. The SP may not have been the first owner of this line, but they made it theirs. This DVD shows it when it was at it’s busiest for the SP.
