BURLINGTON ROUTE: A look back on the Chicago, Burlington & Quincy through photos, slides, B&W negatives and 8 MM film.
The video starts out on the Chicago-Aurora “racetrack” and then moves up the Mississippi River to St. Paul and Minneapolis. This latter segment has quite a few views out the front window of an F-unit in 1948. A fair amount of time is spent in the Twin Cities seeing the facilities, locomotives and sights. Back to Aurora, the line to Galesburg is explored and then the rest of the Illinois lines. After a short trip to Missouri and Kansas, the Iowa branchlines are toured before heading west from Burlington. In Nebraska, the branchlines are first visited and then heads northwest to Wyoming and Montana. The western mainline to Casper is followed, with a number of scenes in the Wind River Canyon, ending up in Denver. Back to Nebraska, the southern mainline is followed into Colorado to Denver. The video concludes with railfan trips from the 1950s and early 1960s and memorabilia.
The DVD video is 91 minutes long. Includes a CD photo book with historical brochures. $21.95 + $16 international shipping
