Review of C&NW From the Cab and Shortline From the Cab - Combo DVD

 3 of 5 (1)
Chicago and North Western
From the Cab

Join us as we ride along in the cab of Chicago and North Western SD-40 dash 2 #6814 on a typical run from Belle Fourche to Rapid City, South Dakota. This video incorporates all natural sound, with no narration, to get a "being there" effect of a day's work in the cab. The trip begins in Belle Fourche, operating over 10 mile per hour tracks before reaching 40 miles per hour on ribbon rail south of St. Onge. We see local work being done and experience the ride into Rapid City.
