Review of Classic Trains from Galesburg & Cameron Illinois 1967-1976 DVD

C. Vision Productions takes you to central Illinois where cinematographer Louie Schaefer captures exciting action from the Chicago Burlington and Quincy, Santa Fe and the birth years of the Burlington Northern and Amtrak.

You will then witness the transformation years of the Burlington Northern merger in 1970, along with the birth years of Amtrak in 1971. Finally, Louie captures action in 1976 including an appearance of Burlington Northern's Bicentennial painted U30C, number 1776 and Santa Fe's Bicentennial painted SD 45 dash 2!
