Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

From 1995 though 1998 Midwest Video Productions captured Conrail, CSX and Norfolk Southern trains across the upper slice of Indiana. This is where the mainlines from the East start to come together as they head into Chicago. This is all Conrail pre-merger footage and we will see some classic diesel power.

Locations include Porter Junction, Whiting, Ogden Dunes, Otis, La Porte, Hobart, South Bend, Elkhart, Spriggsboro and Fort Wayne. We'll spend some time around the Elkhart and Fort Wayne yard areas and see mainline trains heading into and out of Chicago as well as locals and yard jobs.

Within 58 minutes, this DVD covers several spots east of Chicago along the rails of CSX, Norfolk Southern, and Conrail in the mid to late 1990s. There is a good variety of trains shown and the action is heavy. There are good camera angles and quite a bit of narration throughout. There are two negatives for me. One is apparent exposure problems which cause some scenes to have a washed out appearance with fuzziness throughout. The other is the mis-pronunciation of "Pere" in several mentions of the Pere Marquette Railroad.

Additional remarks by Great Lakes Railroader:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Poor.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
