Review of Minnesota Steam Spectacular Cvision

Come along and join C. Vision Productions as we capture the finest steam action in the Land of 10,000 Lakes! 2003 and 2004 was an exciting time for steam enthusiasts in Minnesota as two classic locomotives pulled excursions on Canadian Pacific rails.

Milwaukee Road #261 returned to its home rails on Canadian Pacific's River Sub in October of 2003. This line is the old Milwaukee Road main line from the Twin Cities to Chicago. The 261 once pulled freight on these rails and this excursion was the first time the engine rolled down these tracks since being rebuilt.

In the summer of 2004, Canadian Pacific's Hudson #2816 paid a visit to Minnesota for several excursions. We capture the 2816 as it pulled a special for the Milwaukee Road Historical Association on the River Sub. Then the 2816 joined with the 261 for a double header excursion for the National Railway Historical Society and the 2004 Grand Excursion on the Mississippi River.
