Fostoria, Ohio is a fantastic railroad junction and a true hot spot of non-stop freight action. This complex junction has three diamonds and CSX's Tower F. Three major freight routes cross: 1) The ex-B&O, now CSX, route between Chicago and Cumberland, Maryland 2) The ex-Nickel Plate, now Norfolk Southern, route between Chicago and Buffalo, New York 3) The ex-C&O (Hocking Valley), now CSX, route between Toledo and Columbus, Ohio.
Midwest Video Productions was most active in the mid-to-late 1990s when mergers were happening and flags were falling at a fast clip. This video was shot using professional equipment of the time, but is not up to the clarity of today's high-definition video. It is however an excellent snapshot of an important time in the nation's railroad history.
