Review of BNSF Crossing the Cornbelt Vol 1 - Marshall Subdivision

 5 of 5 (1)
BNSF, Crossing the Cornbelt Volume 1
The Marshall Subdivision

If you crave variety, this tape has it! The Marshall Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe runs from Willmar, Minnesota, to Sioux City, Iowa. This line runs through the rich farmlands of the upper Midwest. There is plenty of variety on this line. Many unit grain trains are common, along with coal trains, taconite trains, general freights and locals. 20 different locomotive models pull 60 trains throughout the video, along with an "in cab" view of the Garretson branch line from Sioux Falls to Garretson, South Dakota. Eight different road names appear, either heading a train or helping within the locomotive consist, along with many leased units as well.
