In this show, we will follow BNSF's historic and scenic former Milwaukee Road mainline from Summit, South Dakota to Terry, Montana, with extended coverage to Miles City, Montana. Also covered in this program, the "Core Lines", from Sioux City, Iowa to Aberdeen, South Dakota, host a variety of local freights, extras, and grain trains as the rails traverse the serene South Dakota countryside. We will also follow several Dakota & Iowa trains across their former Milwaukee rails with the railroad's classy SD39's, SD40-2's, and GP9's in charge. A great variety of BNSF motive power can be seen in this show, as many older locomotives were assigned to manifest and local trains that traversed the route during the production period. Further west, more unit grain and coal trains are seen in operation with newer locomotives leading the way. You'll enjoy seeing the changing landscape as the program unfolds, as we travel across the rolling Coteau Des Prairies landscape of the east, through Missouri River country near Mobridge, then along the buttes through the arid landscape of southwestern North Dakota, and finally, we'll explore the desolate rocky hills and valleys of eastern Montana. Come along, as we explore one of BNSF's best-kept secrets, in "Along the Route of the Milwaukee Road, Volume 2".

An excellent video that shows present operations of what remains of the Milwaukee's Pacific extension. Jointed rail, a large amount of second generation EMD's on locals and through freights, and beautiful scenery make this a must have for any fan of "out of the way" rail lines.
