Review of Soo Line in the Late 1970s DVD

 3.5 of 5 (2)
The Soo Line Railroad was a classic Midwest class one that operated from Portal, North Dakota to Sault Saint Marie, Michigan, along with many branch lines throughout its system. This railroad sported many different types of locomotives with several different lettering schemes. Photographer Fred Crissey spent time documenting movements on the Soo Line in the late 1970's. The segments Fred captured include the Minneapolis, Minnesota to Owen, Wisconsin line, continuing eastward to Byron Hill. Portions of the original Soo main line from Minneapolis east to Prentice, Wisconsin including the line from Dresser to Superior are featured. We also get a chance to view operations between Medford and Prentice, Wisconsin. Fred also travels to central Minnesota to follow the Paynesville Sub that runs from Minneapolis to Glenwood. Our show concludes with scenes of two GP-9's on a train through Fullerton, North Dakota.

You will be amazed when watching Soo Line GP-9's, SD-40's, GP-40's, GP-38 das
