Review of Norfolk Southerns Chicago Line Vol 2 Elkhart to Toldeo DVD

 4.5 of 5 (2)
No other main line into Chicago from the east boasts as much traffic or variety as that of Norfolk Southern's Chicago Line. This high-density double track mainline sees a great deal of moves every day, from unit oil and ethanol moves to hot intermodals to general freights and everything in between. In this volume we cover both freight and passenger trains from Elkhart, Indiana to Toledo, Ohio.

Pooled power is plentiful, and you'll see examples of this from roads like Union Pacific, Canadian National and BNSF. Haulage moves from Canadian Pacific also make appearances. Norfolk Southern Heritage power also finds its way into the production, and we'll see several of them on our journey, including the Conrail, Central Georgia, Penn Central, Southern and many others.

Shot in all seasons of the Year, traffic will be seen in all kinds of conditions, from warm summer days to the cold, blowing winter snow squalls typical for this region of the Midwest. Endangered signals dating bac
