It’s the final 6 years of the BN, from 1990 to 1996, as seen from five major locations around the system. The Chicago area at Highlands and LaGrange, at Birmingham, Missouri, near Kansas City, then along the old Great Northern in the Minot area and in the Sand Hills of Nebraska, and finally along the former CB&Q at Ottumwa and Mt Pleasant, Iowa.
Motive power ranges from E-units to Wide-nose SD70’s, and many scenes feature the cars of the train…a popular feature with modelers and freight car fans! Amtrak trains are also seen, along with pool power from numerous roads.
Part 1 of this series focuses on Minnesota, Valley City, North Dakota and Bushnell Illinois areas. Part 3 is a look back at the BN and predecessors in the late 1970s.
