Review of A Tribute to the ICE Vol 3 Iowa Chicago & Eastern The Corn Lines DV

 3 of 5 (1)
Introducing our latest DVD release, A Tribute to the Iowa Chicago and
Eastern, Volume 3, The Corn Lines


The Canadian Pacific purchased both the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern
and sister railroad, Iowa Chicago and Eastern in October of 2007.
Ownership
formally changed hands in 2008. Although the Iowa Chicago and Eastern
had a short life, the railroad changed the face of the former
Milwaukee Road
lines.


In this program, C. Vision cameras capture trains on IC&E's Corn Lines
in Iowa and Minnesota. We begin with the Owatonna Sub, running north
out of
Mason City, to Owatonna and Faribault, Minnesota. We were fortunate to
view this line operating as a through route before the Chicago to
Huron trains,
along with their southbound counterparts, were diverted in late 2008.
Next, the Jackson Sub in Minnesota provides us with ethanol and local
freight
trains as they traverse the rich farmland of Southern Minne
