Tracing the eastern banks of the upper Mississippi River is BNSF’s St. Croix Subdivision, a mostly double-tracked route providing access for a nonstop parade of traffic from La Crosse, Wisconsin to Minneapolis/St. Paul, Minnesota. Pentrex takes you across the entire sub in the late 1990s, filming throughout the seasons to bring you a unique perspective on this important, busy line. Starting at the Grand Crossing diamond in La Crosse, where BNSF crosses Canadian Pacific trackage, we follow intermodal, coal, grain, taconite, manifest, and other trains along the shores of the Mississippi. Bald Eagles are seen circling overhead, boats ply the waters, and train whistles echo off the surrounding bluffs.

With the variety of trains comes a great variety of motive power. Two Dash-9s make their maiden voyages in Heritage II paint schemes; an original GP30 is seen working the local at Bay City; three GP20s head up a grain train; even BN’s “Pulling for Freedom” locomotive is spotted. The volume and diversity is amazing. Whether the summer sun is beating down on the rails or winter’s snows are flying off them, trains and more trains keep on rolling across BNSF’s St. Croix Subdivision. Here’s a great opportunity for you to enjoy the action, with Trains Along the Upper Mississippi Volume 2!

    I have watched this (as well as part I along the CP former MILW) over and over again!!! The locals call this “God’s Country” and it is easy to see why! I highly recommend visiting this location in person! Pentrex captured the BNSF during the “rainbow era” of paint schemes which add additional color. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

  3. KC fan

    from the newest H2 and H1 power to the most classic GP20s, this show really was well shot, and I love the drastic inclusion of seasons between summer and winter. The BN 1991 is a great surprise and it is all just well shot. 90s and early thousands pentrex is something to be proud to own.
