Review of Inside the Belt Railway of Chicago

 4 of 5 (1)
This documentary style program gives us a rare look at a self-contained railroad. Every railroad that runs in and out of Chicago interchanges with the Belt Railway of Chicago (BRC). We'll see hump yard action and watch cars being humped from the control tower. We'll go inside the tower and the full service engine house. We'll get some cab views and visit the dispatching center.

And, of course, we'll see the trains! Transfers, yard jobs and mainline trains. We'll visit Clearing Yard and use maps to get a better idea of the flow of cars through Clearing Yard.
