Review of Goin to Kansas City DVD

 4.7 of 5 (10)
Climb aboard a hot Burlington Northern Santa Fe vehicle train for a ride across southeastern Kansas and discover what the route looks like from the perspective of the operating crews! Boarding train V-OKCMCI at the crew change point in Arkansas City, you"ll experience a fascinating journey across the Sunflower state. This important BNSF route connects Kansas City with locations in Texas, the Southwest, and California.

The 225-mile run traverses a portion of the Arkansas City Sub, the entire Douglas Sub, and most of the Emporia Subdivision to Argentine Yard. Fast-paced running and efficient dispatching often result in crews completing the journey in under 5 1/2 hours.

From the train and from trackside you"ll enjoy fantastic views of the rolling prairie under clear October skies. Along the way all types of trains are observed on this busy route including piggybacks, stacks, vehicle, grain, coal, and even Triple Crown roadrailers.
