C. Vision Productions continues its look at Minnesota's main lines and visits the BNSF's Wayzata Sub. Often referred to as The Willmar Line, the Wayzata Sub covers 90 miles of territory from Minneapolis to Willmar.
This ex-Great Northern route runs through many different types of landscapes. From major metropolitan areas of the Twin Cities, to the rolling prairies and farm lands in central Minnesota, journey along as our cameras catch the action of freight, coal and grain trains. You'll even see spectacular motive power from other railroads including CSX, Kansas City Southern and Chicago and North Western just to name a few. Several BNSF models also take charge of trains. You won't believe your eyes when you see many trains led with SD-9's! BNSF brought out these old warriors in the summer of 2003 to operate the Willmar to Northtown freights.
C. Vision's look at the Wayzata Sub begins at Minneapolis Junction and continues into the Willmar Yard. Our crews also chase the once-weekly local that operates out of Willmar working industries eastward toward the Twin Cities.
Although this subdivision is short, it isn't short on excitement! Nearly two hours of non-stop action is captured for your enjoyment on "The Willmar Line"!

BNSF through Minnesota. This is an interesting video of a line many of us don't consider a lot about. I was impressed with the wide variety of power, and various companies that were on the head end, which includes WC, CN, and some fallen flags like C&NW, SF etc... There is limited narration, accompanied with scene graphics of where the trains were coming from and going to. This video actually places the viewer at the locations found along the way, as many of the natural sounds are heard. The various seasons are also covered along the way which really adds to the variety. The scenery of the region also varies as the video makes it's way westward adding to the interest of the region. It's very interesting to see it as we are taken along.
An absolutely great video by C-Vision. Highly recommended to all rail fans. No mistakes here for the purchase.
