If you like mainline freight railroading, you can't find a busier line than Union Pacific's incredible triple track line across Nebraska.

With OVER 150 trains a day traversing this stretch of track, you never have to wait longer than a few minutes for a train to go by.

In this program, you'll travel from O' Fallons to Grand Island, and see a multitude of trains. As a special treat, go inside North Platte's Bailey Yard, which is the largest railroad yard in the world. An no visit to Bailey Yard is complete without going to the top of the Golden Spike Tower for a panoramic view of the huge yard.

You'll also visit "Buttermilk Curve", Cozad, Gibbon Junction and many more places along the triple track, as train after train goes by! You'll enjoy watching this program for years to come!

Great videography and wide screen format make the boring subject matter easier to take. They should have spent much more time and gone into much more detail at Bailey Yard.

Additional remarks by TomJ:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

This video covers Union Pacific's mainline from O'Fallons to Grand Island Nebraska. This is the busiest railroad line in the US, and most likely the world. And it is 16X9 Widescreen with stereo sound.

<p>The program starts at O'Fallons and works it's way east to Grand Island. After the opening scene, the narrator uses Google Earth instead of a map to show the area that the video will cover. If you like UP's Big Power, you will like this video – there are a lot of EMD's SD90MACs, as well as EMD's and GE's latest greatest. After seeing a few trains at O'Fallons, the scene shifts to Bailey Yard in North Platte where we spend several minutes watching operations at the world's biggest railroad yard. A special treat is scenes from the newly opened Golden Spike Tower, an 8-story tall observation tower with windows all the way around on the top floor and an open platform on the 7th floor. About half way through the video, we see a SD90MAC that has apparently had a quick emergency repair involving replacement of the front of the short hood, but they did not take time to paint it. Toward the end, a few trains at East Gibbon where the Marysville Sub splits off from the Kearney Sub at the east end of the triple track line.

<p>Narration is minimal. Location markers are displayed for each location, but there are no train symbol markers and only a few train direction markers. Photography is sharp and crystal clear, and distracting glare from cab windows is almost non-existent. Hard Core railfans may be disappointed by the use of fades to avoid showing the entire train in some scenes, but without the fades, a few slow moving coal trains would take up the entire 75 minutes of the video.
