BNSF, Crossing the Cornbelt Volume 1 The Marshall Subdivision
If you crave variety, this tape has it! The Marshall Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe runs from Willmar, Minnesota, to Sioux City, Iowa. This line runs through the rich farmlands of the upper Midwest. There is plenty of variety on this line. Many unit grain trains are common, along with coal trains, taconite trains, general freights and locals. 20 different locomotive models pull 60 trains throughout the video, along with an "in cab" view of the Garretson branch line from Sioux Falls to Garretson, South Dakota. Eight different road names appear, either heading a train or helping within the locomotive consist, along with many leased units as well.

Looking for a production that really brings out the railroad action in the Mid-west USA, and one that does not over do the narration? Focuses on one main line and one company along the way? This C-Vision video is just that. This is the 1st C-Vision production in my collection of railroad videos. I decided on this one in order to see the line that few other producers have looked at, and I am not disappointed. There is lots of action, lots of variety, and great scenic locations. The producers have traveled the line and included the various seasons along the way. The narration is there, but not over done. The sounds of the action is very good, allowing the viewer to feel like you're at track side. It really does a fine job showing the railfan the great locations along the way. There is a cab ride, some switching duties, mainline action at speed, and a good representation of the industries along the way. I did note that some scenes are shadowy, but no different than being at track side yourself. This is a well presentation and deserves a good look at by all railfans and video collectors. It would be a great addition for your collection.
