73 Trains in 73 Minutes!
Here"s your opportunity to sit back and enjoy an entire day"s activity at what some say is the busiest all-freight railroad junction in the world, Union Pacific"s Gibbon Junction. Fifteen hours of incredible train watching have been condensed into 73 action-packed minutes featuring 73 different trains!

Located twenty-nine miles west of Grand Island, Nebraska, and fourteen miles east of Kearney, Gibbon Junction is the meeting point for Union Pacific"s Marysville Subdivision and the east/west Nebraska Division mainline. Pentrex arrived on the scene before sunrise on a long summer"s day in 1997. The first movement was captured 6:10 AM and our day ended at 9:00 PM... seventy-three trains later! Freight, coal, and intermodal trains and local freights all make an appearance. Great weather, a fantastic mix of equipment, and the sheer volume of trains combine to bring you a remarkable video experience. Train symbols with origins and destinations are shown for most movements, as well as the time of day and other statistics. Join us at Gibbon Junction, from sunrise to sunset!

Pentrex hit the mark with this DVD. Shot in one day it shows every train the passes through Gibbon Junction. Though a few are masked by other trains, the parade of trains across this mid-west hot spot is nearly constant. Outstanding color and sound with less naration than most Pentrex videos.
