Review of Kansas City Power Review DVD

Visit Kansas City and surrounding areas, before all the great mergers of the 90's! See trains from many different roads, with detailed maps and narration on how trains moved thru the KC area. Visit Santa Fe Junction, Airline Junction and the "Highline Bridge"! View run down industrial backdrops with trains moving thru "the West Bottoms". Many transfers and locals are shown from Santa Fe, Gateway Western, Soo, UP and KCS! There is also plenty of beautiful countryside settings, and fast running outside of the city, with trains moving at full track speed with multiple engines wide open! See a variety of motive power, that is long gone from mainline service today, including early GE's and EMD locomotives. We show many scenes before the 1996 formal merger, and then contrast scenes shot in 2000 to show the many changes. Watch the newer units taking over, many being the very last orders of engines and models, from these fallen flag railroads. Fine examples of CNW AC-4400 Operation Lifesaver
