Review of Classic Chicago and North Western Vol 3 DVD

Classic Chicago and North Western, Volume 3 features Fred Crissey's footage from the late 1970's. This program features C&NW trains operating on former Rock Island, Chicago Great Western and Minneapolis & St. Louis lines in Iowa, Missouri and Minnesota.

Plenty of Midwest action is captured as trains operate over the Spine Line that runs from St. Paul, Minnesota to Kansas City, Missouri. Fred also captures a train on the ex-CGW from Des Moines, Iowa to St. Joseph, Missouri. This program will take you to many locations in Iowa as several different locomotive models haul freight across the Hawkeye State.

Fred chases several C&NW F-7's as they pull freight on ex M&St.L and CGW lines in Iowa and Minnesota.

Other locomotives, including the Milwaukee Road, Union Pacific, Rock Island and New York Susquehanna & Western also make an appearance.
