Review of Classic Chicago and North Western Vol 4 DVD

From the camera of Roger Bee, C. Vision brings to you the Chicago and North Western in the states of Minnesota, Iowa and Wisconsin, along with the ore lines in Michigan. These classic scenes, most with their natural sounds, are from the 1970s and 80's and show what the CNW was like in its glory days operating on its own main lines. We also see trains on other routes from the former Chicago Great Western, Minneapolis and St. Louis and the Omaha. A huge variety of motive power was captured in this show including F3's, GP7 and 9's, SD9's, GP30's, Baldwins, FM's, many Alco's and so much more! Even steam locomotive number 1385 makes a couple appearances! This is a time period when the North Western was at its finest for railfans. You really don't want to miss this one! It is another gem in our series of Classic Chicago and North Western!
