Review of Norfolk Southern on the Wabash Volume 1 - The Lafayette District DVD

Join C. Vision Productions as we take a tour of Norfolk Southern's Lafayette District. Running on ex-Wabash rails, the Lafayette District runs from Decatur, Illinois to West Peru, Indiana. This line is a main artery for automobile and auto parts traffic traveling between Detroit, Michigan and Kansas City, Missouri.

Along with the autos, many other types of freight can be seen along this line including grain and coal.

Norfolk Southern has a wide variety of locomotive models and this program showcases many of them. Included are rebuilt SD60E's, Caterpillar powered PR43C's, C40-9's, GEVO's, SD-70ACe's, Ex-Conrail C40-8W's and SD60I's with some still in Conrail Blue! Plus, special appearances of their New York Central and Lehigh Valley Heritage units. That's not all! Nickel Plate Steam Locomotive number 765 is also captured on a special!

Lots of great small town settings, grain elevators and old style search light signals can be seen providing great video backdrops. In
