From the 1970's films of Steve Horn, who was employed by the Chicago and North Western as a conductor in the Twin Cities area, we go back in time to view several railroads from the Chicago area, central and western Wisconsin, the Twin Ports of Duluth and Superior, the Twin Cities and rural Minnesota.

Locations in Illinois include Chicago, West Chicago, Glen Ellyn and Lemont. In Wisconsin, we visit Green Bay, Stevens Point and Altoona. Along with Duluth and Superior, we see many locations in the Minneapolis and St. Paul area of Minnesota. Last, we catch some trains through several small towns in Minnesota.

Railroads and merger paint schemes include Rock Island, Chicago & North Western, Gulf Mobile & Ohio on ICG passenger trains, Burlington Northern, Green Bay & Western, Soo Line, Duluth Winnipeg & Pacific, Duluth Missabe & Iron Range, Minneapolis Northfield & Southern, Great Northern, and Milwaukee Road. Several early Amtrak trains are featured including the North Coast Hiawatha, North Coast Limited, Arrowhead and more!

The highlight of this video is extremely rare coverage of the Milwaukee Roads line between Jackson and Hatfield, Minnesota!
