Review of Trains Across the Midwest Volume 6 DVD

Throughout the United States, railroading is colorful and exciting. And the diversity of trains is more profound in the Midwest! C. Vision Productions continues its look at great railroad action in Trains Across the Midwest, Volume 6!
This volume takes you to five different areas in the Midwest showcasing nine different railroads. Starting in the eastern metro of Chicago, we visit Whiting and East Chicago, Indiana to see NS action on the Chicago Line. These cities also play host to the CSX, CN and mill switching at the Arcelor Mittal Steel Mill. Then we move Calumet Interlocking before being treated to a couple of Indiana Harbor Belt SW-1500's simultaneously switching Gibson Yard. CSX, NS and Chicago, Ft. Wayne and Eastern top off our visit in Dolton, Illinois.
Then it is off to Wisconsin to view CN trains from Duplainville to Steven's Point. Lots of locomotive variety can be seen on this line as trains travel through many dairy farms and traverse Byron Hill.
