MINNEAPOLIS & ST. LOUIS RAILWAY: This video has been re-edited with 20 minutes more material (bringing the length to over an hour), the presentation has been re-arranged and has new narration.
The Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway, a line with a selling point of avoiding Chicago congestion, has been gone since 1960. Yet, it still remains a fascinating railroad.
The video, through 663 images and some 8 mm film, starts out in St. Paul and Minneapolis and heads west through Minnesota and South Dakota. Back in Minnesota the tour drops south from Winthrop into Iowa to the connection with the Des Moines line. Back to the Twin Cities, the mainline is followed south to the border, then onto the secondary mainline in Iowa to Des Moines. Back to the Minnesota border the mainline is followed south and east through Iowa and Illinois to Peoria. The video concludes with two railfan excursions and memorabilia.
The narrated DVD video is 62 minutes long. On the CD are images of rolling stock, calendar art, advertisements and memorabilia, along with (in PDF format) passenger & employee timetables, a 1938 Industrial Guide, annual reports, brochures and a 1960 railfan trip booklet. CD contents can be printed out. $19.95 + US16.00 international shipping
