We visit Union Pacific’s busy Marysville Subdivision in 1996, just one year after the UP officially merged the Chicago Northwestern into the UP system, and the Union Pacific is having a motive power shortage. We’ll see a lot of CNW green and yellow along with leased units.

This sub stretches 287 miles from Kansas City, Missouri to Gibbon Jct, Nebraska. It is an important funnel from UP’s Council Bluffs Sub the railroad hub of Kansas City and UP’s southern and southwest markets. This informative program is 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 in the nation’s railroad history.

    A very important stretch of railroad is seen here, connecting the central USA to the west and Powder River. The producer does an excellent job covering the territory showing us some great old power work horses. Don’t let the quality of the video discourage you. Remember the time period and what electronics were available . The historical value of this video makes it a treasure for many years to come.

    Nearly every train in this show is led by Union Pacific widecab GE’s with very well tuned Leslie RS3Ls, and nearly every train is a coal drag, loaded or empty. With that classic Bob Ernst splendor you wont want to miss this show. A few manifests and intermodals are lightly sprinkled in and offer a variety in power including some of the old CNW power.
