Review of BNSF Along the Route of the Santa Fe Vol 6 Marceline Sub DVD

Join us as we continue our journey covering many parts of the ex-Santa Fe main line.In this volume, videographer Kenn Oberneder takes us on a tour of BNSF's Marceline Subdivision between Fort Madison, Iowa and Sibley, Missouri.Kenn captures non-stop intermodal trains along with general freight, sand, racks, grain and the appearance of Amtrak.We also capture additional footage of partner Norfolk Southern between WB and CA Junctions.

The highlight of this video are several scenes of trains going under the now retired ATSF signals prior to them being replaced with modern structures and lights.

Train crews on this line encounter the gentle coaster ride of twists and turns and over the slight rolling hills of northeast Missouri before they ease into the relatively flat run to Kansas City on the west end. One of the more spectacular locations that you will see is the bridge over the Missouri River at Sibley.
