Review of BNSFs Staples East DVD

BNSF's Staples Sub is a part of the ex-Northern Pacific Transcontinental main line that stretches from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest ports of Portland, Seattle and Tacoma. The Staples Sub itself runs from Dilworth to Minneapolis, Minnesota. Following the route of US Highway 10, the staples sub is divided into two dispatching territories with the west end running from Dilworth to Staples. In this presentation, we cover the 128-mile east end from Staples to University Junction in Minneapolis.

Travel along the beautiful countryside of Minnesota where the Staples Sub encounters rolling prairies, unique city's and classic small towns. Plenty of different types of trains are seen including Intermodal, Coal, Grain, Ballast, Crude Oil, Ethanol and General Freight. In addition to the freight traffic, passenger service is abundant with Amtrak's Empire Builder and Northstar Commuter Trains that operate from Big Lake to Minneapolis.
