We'll see pre-merger Southern Pacific on the Central Corridor in Colorado and the SPCSL (SP Chicago St. Louis) into Chicago. Together these lines funnel a lot of traffic over the mountains and plains into Chicago.
Over SP 50 trains are seen! Locations include Glenwood Springs on Southern Pacific/Rio Grande tracks and along Santa Fe tracks across the Mississippi River and at scenic Edelstein Hill. Includes mainline and local trains. Many locals use cabooses.
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.
