The Soo Line Railroad was a classic Midwest class one that operated from Portal, North Dakota to Sault Saint Marie, Michigan, along with many branch lines throughout its system. This railroad sported many different types of locomotives with several different lettering schemes. Photographer Fred Crissey spent time documenting movements on the Soo Line in the late 1970's. The segments Fred captured include the Minneapolis, Minnesota to Owen, Wisconsin line, continuing eastward to Byron Hill. Portions of the original Soo main line from Minneapolis east to Prentice, Wisconsin including the line from Dresser to Superior are featured. We also get a chance to view operations between Medford and Prentice, Wisconsin. Fred also travels to central Minnesota to follow the Paynesville Sub that runs from Minneapolis to Glenwood. Our show concludes with scenes of two GP-9's on a train through Fullerton, North Dakota.

You will be amazed when watching Soo Line GP-9's, SD-40's, GP-40's, GP-38 dash 2's and even F-7's! This show is one that every Soo Line fan should have in their collection!

Awesome video! It brought back a lot memories from my childhood and teen years. The rail ran through Milltown and has since been removed. Wish it was still there. It was a thrill to see all of the old Soo Line locomotives once again. They are my favorite kind of trains to watch.

Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Good Value
Recommend to others? Definitely.

I bought this for my brother, a retired Soo Line engineer, now in a nursing home. With not much to do, I got him a dvd player and the Soo Line video. He really enjoyed living the "good old days" and could name trains and locations faster than the narrator. I'm sure he will watch it countless times. His "roomy" also got interested and watched it with him.

Additional remarks by dolly:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
