Review of From the Twin Ports to the Twin Cities, Vol 2 DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
C. Vision Productions returns to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe's Hinckley Subdivision! We last visited this line in 1998. Several things have changed since our last video and in late 2005, we decided to revisit this fascinating line in all four seasons!

Beginning at Coon Creek Junction in Coon Rapids, Minnesota we tour the line northward to Superior, Wisconsin. You will see coal trains now operating in distributive power mode. Additional BNSF taconite trains pound the rails along with many general freights, grain and potash trains. More Heritage paint schemes appear, including BNSF's newest scheme introduced in 2005! Motive power varies from the traditional SD40-2's and Dash9-44's to the new ES-44AC and DC locomotives. What hasn't changed is the variety of traffic from trackage rights trains from the Union Pacific and Canadian Pacific. The scenery on the northern part of the line is still as stunning as before, including the high trestle over the Kettle River near Sa
