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.
