Review of BNSF On the Banks of the Mississippi DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
Come along with C. Vision Productions and tour the St. Croix Subdivision of the Burlington Northern Santa Fe. We document the St. Croix Sub as it follows the Mississippi River from La Crosse, Wisconsin to St. Croix Junction south of St. Paul, Minnesota. This mostly double track main line is a part of the BNSF's northern Transcontinental Mainline from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest. With the addition of the major hub of Minneapolis and St. Paul, this line has plenty of high speed railroad action!

Watch 60 mile per hour intermodal trains waste no time hauling high priority freight. Other mainline general freight trains and grain trains also make their way along the St. Croix Sub. You will be amazed by the variety of motive power. Older SD-40 dash 2's are still common. General Electric Dash 9-44CW's and newer GE ES-44DC's also head up trains in both the Heritage 2 and the new "Swoosh" style paint schemes. We also capture ex-Santa Fe GE power including Dash 8-40B
