The Elgin Joliet & Eastern Railway was affectionately known as the "J", and their railroad formed a huge 170 mIle arc around the city of Chicago. This action packed DVD video features plenty of exciting EJ&E railroad footage from across the entire system. Starting at Joliet, you'll see mainline freights and unit trains working northeast to Waukegan and southeast to Gary. In Joliet SW1200 switchers and ex-Missabe SDM's are busy working the large yard. A few locals are seen going south over the river line to East Morris and these trains even operate with a caboose! Many historic structures still remain on the "J" and we'll travel by a total of 15 towers, depots and shop buildings. Plus the EJ&E also crosses every major railroad in Chicago - 16 in all!|
