Join C. Vision Productions as we capture the action of short line and regional railroads operating in the land of 10,000 lakes!

In this volume, we feature the St. Croix Valley and the Minnesota Northern.

The St. Croix Valley Railroad runs on a portion of the ex-Northern Pacific Skally line that once ran from the Twin Cities to Duluth and Superior. We follow this railroad as it heads from its headquarters in Rush City to North Branch to retrieve loaded fertilizer cars. Then the train heads north to Hinckley to interchange its freight with the BNSF. You will then be amazed as we view the St. Croix Valley's green GP-9 pulling a private passenger car from Pine City to Rush City.

Then we head to the far northwestern part of the state and follow the Minnesota Northern. From Erskin, we ride along in the Minnesota Northern's caboose over the Canadian Pacific's tracks to Thief River Falls. After passing the historic Thief River Falls Depot, we follow the train and its GP-9 and GP-7 locomotives as they traverse the old Burlington Northern line to Warroad.

These two railroads put on a spectacular short line show! You won't want to miss this volume as C. Vision continues its look at Minnesota's Railroads!

Shortline railraoding is often associated with being slow moving trains, short in length, hauling over short distances in comparison to the main lines. This video fits that description. Minnesota is an interesting state with it's diverse landscape which adds to to nature of railroading, and this video brings out the nature and character of 2 shortlines in Minnesota's north and east regions. With the normal older engines, which are low horsepower, and slower speeds on the line, C-Vision does an excellent job showing us everything from the switch jobs to the transfers to the mainlines. The narration is limited to what is happening at the time, with the open air sounds of the railroad and natural sounds of the locations in each scene. You really get the idea of being at track side on a rail fan trip.
An excellent production that is well worth the value.
