Review of Grand Trunk Western - Vol. 1 Grand Trunk Action Across Michigan DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
See the Grand Trunk Western Railroad in their final decade with lots of exciting 1st and 2nd generation EMD diesel power. Volume One starts at Milwaukee Jct. in Detroit and shows you GT trains along their Holly, Mount Clemens, Flint and South Bend sub-divisions. The train action includes lots of auto-racks and hi-cube boxcars for the Michigan Automobile Industry. See the railroad Hot Spot of Durand, Michigan which includes interchanging traffic with the Central Michigan Railroad, plus the magnificent Durand Union Station along with several other historic depots and towers. There is also a segment on contemporary Grand Trunk Western steam with GTW #6325, a 4-8-4 Northern that's pulling a tourist train. The GT train action includes yard switching, locals, manifests and intermodals plus unit trains of coal and coke. Rail footage era 1989-1999 from the camera of Hal Pantti with additional footage by Brad Plets.
