It's the late 1990s and Union Pacific has taken over the Chicago and Northwester and the CNW Geneva Sub. We'll see some CNW paint, but the UP is really starting to assert itself. Come along on an entriley new Geneva Sub jpourney as we visit Malta, Creston, Meredith, Elburn, Sterling, and Glen Ellyn.
We'll see a variety of trains including unusual trains like PRLW, the '"Airplane Wing'" train, the '"Overland Express'" as well as fast '"Z'" trains. We'll aslo see manifests and locals. Power is primarily CNW, Southern Pacific and Union Pacific.
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.
