Review of Vignettes of the Burlington Northern Volume 2 DVD

Vignettes of the BURLINGTON NORTHERN -Volume 2 recounts the final six years of the BN before its inclusion into BNSF. It is seen from 1990 to July 1996 at five major locations around the system...in the Chicago area at Highlands and LaGrange...at Birmingham, MO, near Kansas City...along the old Great Northern in the Minot, ND area...in the Sand Hills of Nebraska in the Alliance vicinity... and along the former CB&Q at Ottumwa and Mt Pleasant, Iowa. Motive power ranges from E-units to Wide-nose SD70's, and many scenes feature the cars of the train...a popular feature with modelers and freight car fans! Amtrak trains are also seen, along with pool power from numerous roads. And, if you are a horn aficianado, this program has an (inadvertent) collection of really unusual sounding horns! So join us as we recall the last six years of the 'Mean Green Machine', and enjoy Freight, Intermodal, and Coal trains in Vignettes of the Burlington Northern - Volume 2.
