EMDs in Minnesota’s Iron Ore Country

EMDs in Minnesotas Iron Ore Country

22.00

In this show, we will cover CN’s former DM&IR ore lines in northeastern Minnesota, along with a sampling of Northshore Mining and BNSF operations in the area. What draws fans to Minnesota’s north woods and the shores of Lake Superior isn’t just the beautiful country or the interesting iron ore operations, it’s the motive power used to pull trains through this unique region. EMD is king here, and we document these fine machines as they thunder across CN’s Missabe, Minntac, Iron Range, and Two Harbors Subdivisions. We also follow Northshore Mining’s mainline between Silver Bay and Babbitt, Minnesota, exploring some remote areas of Minnesota’s Arrowhead. You’ll see NSM’s older SD40-3s, as well as leased SD90MACs hauling raw taconite ore and tailings trains across the railroad. BNSF’s Kelly Lake and Grand Rapids locals are also briefly covered, powered by pairs of SD40-2s.

With GE power slowly being equipped with straight air for ore service on the former Missabe, we made it our goal to bring you the best of EMD-powered trains in the Northland before it was too late. Many SD40 and SD40-2 variants are seen in operation, along with a brief look at Missabe SD38 and SD38-2 locomotives. Rebuilt SD45T-2 tunnel motors in CN, B&LE, and DM&IR paint steal the show!

We cover the area in all four seasons, adding to the variety of the program. Sit back and relax as we take you on an exciting tour from Lake Superior to the Iron Range, in C. Vision’s "EMDs in Minnesota’s Iron Ore Country".

Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's

Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's

16.00

Mountains and narrow gauge railroads are two things that worked well together years ago. One of the more notable of those narrow gauge railroads belonged to the Rio Grande. In this video, C. Vision presents the Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's from the films of George Niles.

On his journeys to Colorado, George captured a variety of standard gauge action, including the Santa Fe, Colorado & Southern and standard gauge Rio Grande scenes.

In Durango, our narrow gauge journey begins. Here we see the spectacular trains and scenery of the line from Durango to Silverton from both trackside and on board.

Next, we view a pair of "Cumbres Turns" with K-36 #483 and K-37 #490 in charge. These trains ran to and from Chama, New Mexico and Cumbres, Colorado.

Then it's off to Salida, Colorado for our last segment. This is where we begin to see some great scenes of the Monarch Turn from Salida to the CF&I Limestone Quarry. Locations on this line include Maysville and the Garfield Switch Back.

This video includes a big portion of the Rio Grande narrow gauge fleet. 2-8-2's in the K-27, K-28, K-36 and K-37 class are shown along with US Army diesel 4700N, that was tested by the Rio Grand in 1954.

Combine awesome Rocky Mountain scenery with classic narrow gauge railroading...and you have an incredible combination of railroading so unique...you have to see it to believe it! Don't miss The Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950's.

QUEBEC & LABRADOR + NEWFOUNDLAND

QUEBEC & LABRADOR + NEWFOUNDLAND

16.50

This the third of four volumes of SPV's COMPREHENSIVE RAILROAD ATLAS OF NORTH AMERICA covering Canada and includes the provinces of Quebec and Newfoundland & Labrador.

The Atlas shows all currently operated common carrier, tourist and major industrial railroads along with abandoned routes. Lines shown as electrified or narrow gauge are shown only as such when they are currently so equipped or were at abandonment. Lines built as narrow or broad gauge and subsequently regauged are shown as standard gauge. It should be noted that some lines shown as "in service" may see very infrequent use whilst some "abandoned" lines may, if the tracks remain in place, be reactivated for a special movement.

Every effort has been made to show all current operating locations as defined in railroad operating timetables.

Along PUGET SOUND

Along PUGET SOUND

BNSF's Scenic and Bellingham Subdivisions

Journey to northwestern Washington State where the BNSF main line reveals the beauty of Puget Sound. Running between Seattle and the Canadian border at Blaine, trains traverse the western portion of the Scenic Subdivision and the entire Bellingham Sub.

Visit the Seattle waterfront and busy yard at Interbay. Follow the shoreline of Puget Sound while viewing several hot spots including Carkeek Park, Richmond Beach, Edmonds, Mukilteo, and Everett.

The scenic shoreline transitions to lush farmland, wild rivers, and secluded coves while passing the charming communities of Stanwood, Mt. Vernon, Burlington, and Bellingham.

Unit coal, crude oil trains, and hot shot intermodals draw the latest high tech diesels, while several locals still sport vintage four axle EMD's. Besides freight, Amtrak's Empire Builder, Cascades Talgo sets, and Sounders are everywhere shuffling passengers between busy stations along the line.

This is modern day railroading in the heart of the Pacific Northwest!

Shot in the summer and fall of 2018.
