Review of Windy City Rails Vol 4 BNSF Triple Track on Aurora Sub DVD

 4.7 of 5 (3)

Run-through trains from the Canadian National and Union Pacific also operate on the Triple Track. At the east end near Union Avenue, witness several of Union Pacific's 'Z' trains which cross the Triple Track, and see U.P. movements with several of their Heritage locomotives!
