Volume 3 of Minnesota's Railroads takes you to the central part of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. First, C. Vision cameras follow the Ruebel Turn on the Twin Cities & Western's ex Milwaukee Road main line from Glencoe to Renville. On this line we follow two trains. One led with TC&W's GP-30 Cat #4300 and the other with a visiting Red River Valley & Western GP-15 Cat. This line runs through the heart of Minnesota's Corn Belt. Many small towns with classic grain elevators keep the Twin Cities & Western busy with grain movement along with a sugar beet factory in Renville. We also get a glimpse of operations between Minneapolis and Glencoe including a slug CF-7 leading a transfer.

The sister company of the TC&W is the Minnesota Prairie Line. This railroad runs on ex Minneapolis & St. Louis track from its connection with the TC&W at Cologne to Wood River. We follow the entire route as two GP-10's and another visiting Red River Valley & Western GP-20 Cat haul freight over the system. Along with the TC&W line, the Minnesota Prairie Line tracks run through many small towns and pass two restored M&St.L depots. You will love the sound of those GP-10's as they growl while climbing out of the Minnesota River valley at Morton!

Two classic Minnesota railroads wearing the familiar University of Minnesota colors of maroon and gold put on an awesome display of railroading for you to enjoy in Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 3!

Another great production by C-Vision. Shortline railroad action that takes us west of the Twin Cities. Here we have 2 shortlines, running relatively in the same direction, fairly close to each other, through the heart of some of the finest agricultural lands of the region. Grain elevators abound as we are taken through some beautiful small towns. See the cattle and horses at pasture as some farmers work hard for the nation's people food supply. It all adds to the magestic beauty of this region. Model railroaders would love this with so many different yet close style of industries. Like most shortlines, the power is older and smaller than the mainlines, and haulage is slower. But it does not lack in interest.
Narration is limited to the scene at the time, with all the natural sounds that a rail fan will hear when visiting the region.
A great production of 2 very fine locations and railroads. Well worth the value and time to purchase and view over and over again.
