Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Taped in August, 1999, merger day plus 85. Conrail's Chicago Line now belongs to CSX, so we took a look at the line between Selkirk and Buffalo to see what was happening. Power is half CSX and half re-numbered Conrail, with leased units and run-through power making for some colorfull railroading. Lots of traffic keeps the action going continuously. Some familiar locations plus some new. Check out the changes on the Chicago Line, you won't be sorry.

This line was covered several years before while under Conrail Blue in a 2 volume series. Having travelled the line on Amtrak... I was hoping to see something really exciting and better than the Conrail series. Really.... the major difference is: the ownership of the line. It's a good video, don't get me wrong. Plenty of railroad action, which is why we purchase railroad videos. I was hoping for something slightly better than what we have seen in the past.

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Yes.
