It is the first year for operations on the BNSF, but the Santa Fe personality and paint is still dominant on the BNSF Chillicothe Sub, the former Santa Fe Chillicothe Sub. 90% of the power is still Santa Fe, with an occasional Burlington Northern engine and a new BNSF paint schemes thrown into the mix.
This is Volume Two of a two volume series. Volume Two shows us the subdivision West of Chillicothe. Locations include Edelstein Hill, Houilhan's Curve, Dahinda, Galesburg, Cameron and the Mississippi River crossing at Ft. Madison.
Midwest Video Productions was most active in the mid-to-late 1990s when mergers were happening and flags were falling at a fast clip.
