Indiana and Michigan locations include Valparaiso, Wellsboro, Durand, Gaines, Fenton, Bloomfield Hills, Birmingham, Oxford and more, AND you'll see mainline and branchline (Pontiac, Oxford and Northern!) passenger and freight trains (Incredible rolling stock shots!) pulled by 0-8-0, 0-8-2, 2-8-0, 4-6-2, 4-8-2, and U-3b and Streamlined U-4b 4-8-4's! You will also see glimpses of the NKP at Valpo, the AA at Durand, and take a short trip to Canada via the St Clair River Tunnel to visit parent Canadian National at Sarnia, Komoka, and Paris Junction.
