Review of Chicago & Northwestern in Northwest Wisconsin DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Takes an indepth regional look at the Chicago & Northwestern Railroad. Starting in Altoona, you'll see the rail system covered north to Superior, West to Hudson, and East to Adams, 327 miles in all. This show features beautiful Wisconsin scenery, towns, depots and history. See over 20 different models of working locomotives from EMD, GE, and Alco, including 14 on the C&NW roster. The action includes yard switching, locals, mainline freights, unit trains, a diesel and caboose pace scene and a cab ride on a local using C&NW SD18 #6622. You'll also see connecting railroads of Wisconsin Central, Green Bay & Western, and the Duluth Winnipeg & Pacific.

This exciting video was eight years in the making from 1987 - 1995 with footage from the camera of Bradley A. Plets.
