A 1960’s Train Travelogue

From the Super 8mm films of Joseph Seidl, C. Vision Productions proudly presents “A 1960’s Train Travelogue”, a moving portrait of vintage and exotic railroading in the 1960’s throughout several parts of the US and Canada.
Joe embarked on several rail safaris with his Argus Super 8mm camera that includes the C&NW and Milwaukee Road in his hometown of Menominee, Michigan. Other roads Joe covered near his hometown were the Soo Line and the Green Bay & Western in northeastern and central Wisconsin. During his jaunts to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula he captured the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Alco’s on the Marquette Iron Range.
Joe frequented the Canadian railroads as well documenting the Canadian Pacific along the northern Lake Superior shore and the Canadian National and Ontario Northland railroads. Included are shots of the “Canadian” in its maroon and gray scheme, the “Super Continental” on the CN, along with the Turbo train. You will even see the “Northland” and the “Polar Bear Express” on the Ontario Northland.
Entering the Navy in 1968 he shot the CB&Q trackside while stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Center. While stationed elsewhere in the country he was able to capture a former Santa Fe PA-4u, now painted in the blue and gray scheme of the Delaware & Hudson pulling the “Laurentian” through Whitehall, New York and Seaboard Coastline E6’s, E7’s, and E8’s pulling the “Gulf Coast Special” through Charleston, South Carolina. Other interesting roads that are featured are of the Penn Central GG-1’s in Maryland, the Great Northern in Superior, Wisconsin and CB&Q 2-8-0 steam locomotive #4960 pulling the Ringling Brothers Circus train between Lodi and Helensville, Wisconsin.
And we don’t stop there. We go back to the late 1950’s thru 1966 to see some Milwaukee Road and Soo Line action in eastern Wisconsin from the camera of Lynn Longley.
So grab your popcorn, turn off the lights, and sit back and enjoy the multitude of majestic railroad color and heraldry, and enjoy your own personal travelogue.

A Tribute to the Illinois Central

The Illinois Central Railroad, which is also referred to as the Main Line of Mid-America, ran in the central United States from Chicago to New Orleans along with many other branch lines.

The Illinois Central became a part of the Canadian National Railway in 1998. A time when many class one’s were finding merging partners.

In this production Marshall Beecher along with William Beecher Junior, Mike Savona and Chris Laskowski, capture the IC’s black beauties hauling freight along the IC system and beyond.

Marshall captures the Illinois Central before and after the CN merger in the mid to late 1990’s on its main line from Chicago to Humboldt, Illinois.

William, Mike and Chris join Marshall following the Illinois Central in several other areas. Included is a portion of IC’s Iowa Division from Galena, Illinois to Raymond, Iowa. Then we finish the show watching post CN merger trains on former Wisconsin Central and Green Bay & Western lines led with IC locomotives.

This show features many of the Illinois Central’s locomotive power that was persistent on its main line trains. Locomotive models shown include E-9’s, SD-20’s, SD-40’s, SD-40 dash 2’s, SD-70’s, GP-38 dash 2’s and GP-40R’s. Along with the IC, other road power is shown including Amtrak, Conrail, Chicago and North Western and Burlington Northern. IC’s former electric commuter trains, now operated by Metra are also featured.

From the bustling city of Chicago to the farm fields of the upper Midwest, you will enjoy seeing this fallen flag hauling fast freight on the Main Line of Mid-America!

A Tribute to I.C.E. V. 2 - Iowa's Main Lines

The Canadian Pacific purchased both the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern and sister railroad, Iowa Chicago and Eastern in October of 2007. Ownership formally changed
hands in 2008. Although the Iowa Chicago and Eastern had a short life, the railroad changed the face of the former Milwaukee Road lines.

In this program, C. Vision cameras capture the IC&E's main line trains in Iowa.

In our journey, we begin with action in the Soo Line Days in the early 1990's and a brief look at IC&E's predecessor I&M Rail Link. Witness the variety of traffic the IC&E ran on their River, Marquette and Mason City Subdivision's. We capture trains through the beautiful scenery along the Mississippi River from Brownsville, MN to Linwood, IA and through classic river cities including Davenport and Dubuque. On the Mason City Sub, we will follow trains from Marquette to Mason City. On this line, you will enjoy the sight and sounds of SD-40 dash 2's in throttle 8 climbing the grade of Calmar Hill and encountering the beautiful countryside Iowa has to offer.

A Tribute to I.C.E. V. 3 - The Corn Lines

The Canadian Pacific purchased both the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern and sister railroad, Iowa Chicago and Eastern in October of 2007. Ownership formally changed hands in 2008. Although the Iowa Chicago and Eastern had a short life, the railroad changed the face of the former Milwaukee Road lines.

In this program, C. Vision cameras capture trains on IC&E’s Corn Lines in Iowa and Minnesota. We begin with the Owatonna Sub, running north out of Mason City, to Owatonna and Faribault, Minnesota. We were fortunate to view this line operating as a through route before the Chicago to Huron trains, along with their southbound counterparts, were diverted in late 2008. Next, the Jackson Sub in Minnesota provides us with ethanol and local freight trains as they traverse the rich farmland of Southern Minnesota. We end with a journey across the Mason City Sub from Sheldon to Mason City, Iowa. This line provided us with many timeless scenes of long, heavy grain locals pounding along the 90-pound jointed rail at 25 miles-per-hour through the serene Northern Iowa countryside before the line was restricted to 10 miles-per-hour by the Canadian Pacific. Many beautiful evening and night scenes were captured for your enjoyment on a line rarely documented by photographers. You'll be amazed as fireflies fill the air while IC&E's crews complete their nightly work around Spencer. We also capture trains grinding up the one percent grade out of the East Fork Des Moines River valley at Algona, and climbing the glacial boundary around Ruthven. This program captures the IC&E at its finest, during an era that can never be duplicated, so don’t miss a final look at this unique fallen flag in, "A Tribute to the Iowa, Chicago and Eastern, Volume 3: The Corn Lines"!

A Tribute to the SOO Line

If you are a fan of the Soo Line, you'll love this video! Since the Canadian Pacific Railway took over the Soo Line in the early 1990's, it has become a rare sight to see Soo Line locomotives leading trains, especially on original Soo Line tracks. Most Soo locomotives were being sold or repainted, while others were reassigned to service in Canada. C. Vision Productions has captured the images of these red and white locomotives in, "A Tribute to the Soo Line." Our crew traveled the original Soo Line on the Paynesville Subdivision from Glenwood to Minneapolis, Minnesota to capture the Soo locomotives leading trains. We also followed the Soo on the old Milwaukee Road main line following the Mississippi River from St. Paul to River Junction.

Five main locomotive types from the Soo Line are featured in this program. Venerable SD 40 dash 2's, GP 38 dash 2's and GP 40's can be seen pulling freight through the rolling prairies of Minnesota, along with the larger SD 60's and SD 60M's. We even see Soo Line cabooses still in use on way freights and locals! Each train is also identified by its symbol.

Don't miss "A Tribute to the Soo Line," as it is one of the last videos to show you these original locomotives in charge of moving commodities across the upper Midwest.

A Tribute to Wisconsin Central V. 1

The Wisconsin Central assumed operations of the former Soo Line "Lake States" trackage on October 11, 1987. Since that time, the railroad has transformed itself from fledgling regional carrier to a successful arm of a major class one railroad. In this production, you will experience the Wisconsin Central Ltd. through the eyes of Beecher brothers Marshall and William Junior, a showcase on the operation of this classy regional carrier 18 years in the making! The show will highlight railroading from the field and in the cab so viewers can see what made this operation so successful and so compelling. Witness movement of trains within the Chicago Terminal, from operations on home rails to destinations on several foreign line carriers. Take a last look inside a Chicago-Area Manned interlocking tower prior to its closure and see plenty of maroon and gold hauling tonnage in and around the windy city. View trains running on WC's busy Chicago Subdivision and witness their trains on rails of SOO Line/CP Rail in and around the Milwaukee, WI area. Along the way, you will view haulage guests Wisconsin and Calumet and later Wisconsin and Southern, as they move overhead traffic on WC's busy mainline artery through southeastern Wisconsin. The overview of operations in this volume will stretch from the bustling city of Chicago to the small town of Slinger, Wisconsin, and will showcase footage from the early 1990's all the way up until takeover by the Canadian National in fall of 2001.

Along the Route of the Milwaukee Rd V. 1

C. Vision's cameras take you on a journey across the former Milwaukee Road mainline from St. Paul, Minnesota to Summit, SD. The line's current operators, Canadian Pacific, Minnesota Commercial, Twin Cities & Western, and BNSF keep this line active and interesting, and we will see all of them in operation. We take a look back to TC&W's operations in the early to mid-1990's, as well as current operations. A cab ride from Hopkins to St. Paul Yard aboard TC&W's short-lived SD20's, through the Depression Corridor and over Short Line Bridge, is something you won't want to miss! Along with the SD20's, we capture TC&W's classic fleet of GP10's in operation before they were replaced by Caterpillar GP20C's in 1997. From 2007-2009, we return to the TC&W to document new unit train operations, along with a renaissance of older EMD power on TC&W turn jobs. RRV&W GP10's, leased CP GP9's, TC&W's GP39-2's, and the occasional CAT are all seen hauling freight across Minnesota. Coal trains for Southern Minnesota Beet Sugar Cooperative in Ruebel began operating with BNSF run-through power during the production period. SOO Line SD60's were the primary power for ethanol trains on the TC&W at the time of production, and you'll see several of these trains.
Not to be outdone, BNSF puts on a spectacular show with a variety of motive power that will not be seen again! SD40-2's were the most common power on through freights. Several BNSF first-generation diesels are seen in action, as well as BNSF's only operating SDP40. We're sure you'll enjoy seeing this line operating as the Milwaukee Road intended, as BNSF freights kept the jointed rail polished on their journeys to and from the Pacific Northwest and Montana. From the Mississippi River Valley, to the beauty of the Coteau Des Prairies landscape of eastern South Dakota, this program documents the unique operations, motive power, and scenery across this historic route.

Calumet Rails V. 1

The Calumet Region is the name given to the geographic areas drained by the Grand Calumet River and the Little Calumet River of northwestern Illinois and Indiana. In this region, many Chicago-destined rail lines that come from the east make a turn along with the southern edge of Lake Michigan. Several north-south lines radiating from the city cross these lines, making for a good deal of rail intersections within a very compact area. Add in all the heavy industry along the lakeshore and one can see why to this day there's such a proliferation of rail traffic in this geographical region. In volume one of our two part series we will examine several rail operations of the region, mainly within the state of Illinois. Locations included are Blue Island, Harvey Junction, Riverdale, the Dolton area, a brief glimpse of the Chicago Rail Link, and then we will work our way east towards many locations just inside the Illinois/Indiana border. A few scenes in the Hoosier state will be seen in our look at some South Shore operations and the final segments at Hohman Avenue and Hammond, Indiana. This area is rife with rail traffic so be sure not to miss all the action in Calumet Rails, Volume One from C. Vision Productions.

Calumet Rails V. 2

The Calumet Region is the name given to the geographic areas drained by the Grand Calumet River and the Little Calumet River of northwestern Illinois and Indiana. In this region, many Chicago-destined rail lines that come from the east make a turn along with the southern edge of Lake Michigan. Several north-south lines radiating from the city cross these lines, making for a good deal of rail intersections within a very compact area. Add in all the heavy industry along the lakeshore and one can see why to this day there's such a proliferation of rail traffic in this geographical region. In volume two of our two part series we will examine rail operations of the region, within the state of Indiana. Locations include Indiana Harbor, Calumet Tower, Grasselli and Gibson. Canadian National Operations on the east end of their Matteson Subdivison are also featured at spots like Ivanhoe and Griffith and we’ll close the show with a look at some moves west of Gary in the vicinity of Tolleston. Colorful scenes of railroading on this fascinating side of Chicago conclude in Calumet Rails, Volume Two from C. Vision Productions.

Canadian Pacific Along Mighty Mississippi

Travel along with C. Vision Productions as we tour the Canadian Pacific's River Subdivision in eastern Minnesota. The River Sub is an ex-Milwaukee Road main line that travels along the western banks of the Mississippi River from St. Paul to La Crescent. This magnificent area is full of beauty and nature, which provides numerous photo opportunities.

The River Sub handles many different types of trains from the Canadian Pacific. Adding to the mix, I & M Rail Link trains operate over the River Sub via trackage rights on its St. Paul to Kansas City route. Amtrak's "Empire Builder" uses this line for its route between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest. Coal trains delivered to the C.P. by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe retain BNSF power adding to the mix. Plus, see Soo Line locomotives in charge of trains as they once were before Canadian Pacific purchased the Soo.

Bluffs, valleys, bald eagles, barges and trains...the River Sub has it all! Experience railroad action from a different landscape that the Midwest has to offer. All of this and more in "Canadian Pacific, Along the Mighty Mississippi"!

Classic Burlington Northern V. 1

The Burlington Northern Railroad was the product of a March 2nd, 1970, merger of four major railroads, the Great Northern Railway, Northern Pacific Railway, Spokane, Portland and Seattle Railway and the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. In this series, we feature the films of Fred Crissey, who traveled to many areas along the BN’s route in the central United States in the late 1970’s and 1980’s with his 8-millimeter movie film camera. In volume 1, Fred travels to the states of Wyoming, Montana, Washington, Illinois, Colorado, New Mexico and Texas. Cascade green and black locomotives are seen in such locations as Wyoming’s Wind River Canyon, Montana’s Bozeman and Mullen Pass and Skykomish, Washington. You have to see the action Fred captured while riding in a suburban commuter train between Aurora and Chicago, Illinois when the BN was using their fleet of E-9’s. We finish the show along the Foothills of the Rocky Mountains and follow the old Colorado & Southern and the Fort Worth & Denver between Trinidad, Colorado and Dalhart, Texas.

Classic Chicago & North Western V. 1 “The AlcoLine”

During the remarkable 147-year history of the Chicago and North Western Railroad Company from 1848 to 1995, the railroad fielded a variety of main line and branch line service throughout the Midwest and High Plains region, not to mention several locomotive types to move those trains. A secondary C&NW main line from Chicago ran northwest through Wisconsin, Minnesota, and South Dakota to Pierre, Dakota Territory in 1880. This route was finally completed across South Dakota to Rapid City in 1907. In the late 1970s, many American Locomotive Company units were based at Huron, South Dakota, due to their lightweight and pulling capacity. This specific suitability to the area's light rail and slow speeds established the Pierre to Winona route as the ALCO line. In this video, photographer Fred Crissey follows the ALCO Line between Winona, Minnesota and Pierre, South Dakota, from 1977 to 1981. Also included are the Plainview, Minnesota and Aberdeen to Huron, South Dakota branch lines. This program features awesome ALCO locomotives that include RS2, RSD4, RSD5, RS32, and C425 models along with EMD SD-7R and SD-9's. This is one part of the C&NW that was very unique, but short-lived. Let C. Vision bring these memories into your home for life!

Cliffs ERIE Cab Ride

In 2001, LTV Mining's plant site and dock shut down operations in the arrowhead of Minnesota.

In the summer of 2008, Cliffs Erie revived the line for one last time. They brought back the famous set of F-9 locomotives to move taconite fines from the former LTV dock at Taconite Harbor to the Hoyt Lakes mine site for transloading onto trains for the Severstal Steel plant in Baltimore, Maryland. Only a handful of these trains were operated and C. Vision was granted special access to ride in the cab between Taconite Harbor and Tunnel Siding! Not only will you get a chance to view the scenic beauty of northern Minnesota from these 1956 built locomotives, but we also captured several trackside views from Taconite Harbor to Hoyt Lakes, including shots of the very last train that ran on October 28, 2008.

DM&E Dakota Minnesota and Eastern RR. V. 1; The East End

In Volume 1 of our coverage of the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern, videographer Mike Savona follows the railroad's mainline from Winona, Minnesota to Waseca, Minnesota, with the DM&E's operations from Owatonna, Minnesota to Mason City, Iowa, over IC&E rails, also included. We follow the tracks
as they climb out of the scenic Mississippi River Valley, across the beautiful rolling hills of southeastern Minnesota, through the Zumbro River Valley around Rochester, and finally, we view trains as they
traverse the open countryside of southern Minnesota and northern Iowa. Locomotives from DM&E, IC&E, CP, and even a St. Lawrence & Hudson outcast, are all seen in operation. Sit back and enjoy the sights and sounds of DM&E trains pounding along classic jointed rail, with the railroad's EMD
workhorses doing what they do best. Today's DM&E is a far cry from the railroad that existed just ten years ago, as many extensive track rehabilitation projects, the purchase of the I&M Rail Link, and the
takeover by Canadian Pacific, have all played a part in the transformation of this railroad from a scrappy underdog, to a viable competitor in the Midwest rail-scene. With coverage from 1996 to 2011, you'll see the transformation firsthand, along with a great variety in operations and motive-power that you are sure to enjoy. Come along with C. Vision Productions, as we bid farewell to the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern and welcome the arrival of a new era under Canadian Pacific ownership.

Dakota Minnesota & Eastern V.2
Thunder Across the Prairie

In Volume 2 of our coverage of the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern, we cover the railroad's mainline from Waseca, Minnesota to Pierre, South Dakota. In addition to the mainline, DM&E's three remaining branch lines are also covered. With coverage before and after the CP takeover, a great variety of motive power is seen in operation, including the arrival of SOO and CP SD60's on DM&E lines. This show chronicles EMD's finest, as they power across the railroad with heavy trains of grain, ethanol, and bentonite. The mainline travels through the scenic Minnesota River Valley from Mankato to New Ulm, snakes its way through Buffalo Ridge near Lake Benton, traverses the Glacial Lakes region of eastern South Dakota, and then enters the open prairie for the journey through the center of the state. After passing through Blunt, the tracks leave the prairie behind to follow the beautiful Missouri River into Pierre. We were fortunate to view trains on all three of DM&E's active branch lines. The Yale Spur, along with the Mansfield and Onida Subdivisions, provided us with a great diversion from mainline operations, as well as a window into the railroad's past. We captured several scenes in the vicinity of thunderstorms, making for some dramatic footage that you are sure to enjoy. This four hour program documents the heart of DM&E's operations in its central corridor like never before. All of this and more is here for you, in "A Tribute to the Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern, Volume 2, Thunder Across the Prairie".

Beginning at Coon Creek Junction in Coon Rapids, Minnesota we tour the line northward to Superior, Wisconsin. You will see coal trains now operating in distributive power mode. Additional BNSF taconite trains pound the rails along with many general freights, grain and potash trains. More Heritage paint schemes appear, including BNSF's newest scheme introduced in 2005! Motive power varies from the traditional SD40-2's and Dash9-44's to the new ES-44AC and DC locomotives. What hasn't changed is the variety of traffic from trackage rights trains from the Union Pacific and Canadian Pacific. The scenery on the northern part of the line is still as stunning as before, including the high trestle over the Kettle River near Sandstone, the Net River at Holyoke and the Black River and Nemadji River Bridges south of Superior.

Canadian National trains ceased operations on the Hinckley Sub in August of 1998. However, CN locomotives started making an appearance again in late 2005 as they pooled interchange operations with the Union Pacific. A few fallen flag locomotives are still seen including Soo Line, Burlington Northern, Santa Fe and Southern Pacific!

We captured many of these aging units that were leading trains in the years 2012 to 2017. Volume one takes a look at the C40-8’s from the CSX, C40-8’s and 9’s from Norfolk Southern and C40-8M’s of the fallen BC Rail.

Several trains are captured throughout the Midwest on both home rails and across the BNSF and Canadian Pacific systems mostly due to the increased crude oil traffic in North Dakota. Just prior to the production of this show, CSX eliminated the C40-8 from its roster and NS was in the process of rebuilding some of theirs while purging the rest. It is a refreshing sight to see BC Rail’s red white and blue cowls traveling across the CN in North America!

Grand Island Nebraska

Grand Island sits along the Platte River in the east central part of Nebraska. The Union Pacific and Chicago Burlington & Quincy crossed at grade on the city's east side, and for many years this proved to be a busy intersection for train traffic. In 1995, a new Burlington Northern overpass over the Union Pacific main line was completed. Today, BNSF operates the ex-CB&Q line, while the U.P. continues its dominance on its Overland Route.
In this program, we begin by showing operations in Grand Island in 1979, when a tower controlled the diamond.

We then capture the action in May 2010. Union Pacific keeps its double track main line busy with all types of freight, while the BNSF hauls mostly Powder River Basin coal trains on its route from Alliance to Lincoln, Nebraska. You will enjoy the exciting new locomotive power as it makes its way along this historic hotspot. There's never a dull moment, as several trains cross over and under each other simultaneously. Short line Nebraska Central is also captured as it operates the former U.P. branch line to Ord.

In the summer of 2004 the IC&E re-activated most of the IMRL SD40's and, quite amazingly, SD9 #614. Other locomotives including former IMRL GP9's, SD45's, and of course ICE's SD40-2's and GP40-2's are seen in operation. Watch in awe as former Soo Line GP9 locomotives are seen in mainline local service between Nahant and Clinton, Iowa.

From surreal scenes of the moon rising over the Sabula causeway to rotating stop sign- equipped Griswold crossing signals, this video is something to behold. The Milwaukee #261, I&M Rail Link, Illinois Central, Progressive Rail, and CP/Soo are also seen in this show. Regional railroads are an important part of Midwest railroading, and the IC&E's operations are testament to the importance of keeping freight moving across the heartland. With the natural beauty of the land, combined with exceptional trains, this video shows you the best of the Iowa, Chicago and Eastern!

Memories of the LTV

Join C. Vision as we head to the desolate lands of Lake Superior's northern shores to bring you the often overlooked, but amazingly time preserved operation of LTV Mining Company.

LTV has been known for its stable of F-9 locomotives, as they toil ore loads from Hoyt Lakes to the docks at Taconite Harbor, Minnesota. In this video you will see a variety of action, from the mining and loading of raw iron ore, to various runbys of the F-units and a variety of other motive power.

Prior to LTV's shutdown, C. Vision cameras were there to capture 9 different road trains, documented from 1998 to 2000 including GP-38's as well as the famous "6 pack" lashups of A-B-B-B-B-A covered wagons. All this adds up to one great hour of LTV Memories!

Midwest Regionals in 1980’s-1990’s

In the 1980’s, the Midwest’s rail scene was one of many colors and varieties. Not only were there several class one railroads, but regionals and short lines flourished as well. Videographer Bob Rivard spent days documenting four different regionals from the early 1980’s to the early 1990’s. This historic footage captures several sights and sounds you are sure to enjoy!
Starting on the Chicago Central and Pacific’s Iowa Division, you will love the sound of big sets of first generation EMD GP locomotives through the rolling landscape of western Illinois and eastern Iowa. Many trains are led with engines still wearing the original ICG paint scheme, along with CC&P red and some ex Milwaukee Road units.
Then we head to central Iowa where Bob catches a Cedar Rapids and Iowa City train led with its attractive yellow and gray GP9’s.
Before all the blue and gold SD40-2’s, the Dakota Minnesota and Eastern rostered ex Chicago & North Western SD9’s and Milwaukee Road SD10’s. We see several DM&E trains on the east end near Waseca and Owatonna, Minnesota.
Finally, we head to Wisconsin to see the Alco powered Green Bay and Western. Yard switching, road trains and even a ride on the City of Midland 41 rail and car ferry across Lake Michigan are featured. You will love the sites and sounds of these Alco locomotives in several varieties moving across the Dairy State!
So revisit the 1980’s and 1990’s with C. vision Productions to enjoy what regional railroading was like in this unique time era.

Minnesota Railroads V 1: Progressive Rail

Join C. Vision Productions as we capture the action of short line and regional railroads operating in the land of 10,000 lakes!

In this volume, we feature the Progressive Rail. This fascinating short line operates 5 different rail lines in east central Minnesota. We capture all 5 lines with run-bys and switching at many industries.

The Northfield to Lakeville line is an ex-Minneapolis, Northfield and Southern Route. Progressive Rail purchased this line from the Canadian Pacific in 2004 and operates a daily train each way using an ex-MN&S SD-39 in an inspired MN&S paint scheme.

The Progressive Rail also uses an ex-MN&S SW-1500, along with other SW-1500s in the MN&S scheme on their other routes. The Highline is another ex-MN&S line that runs through the Minneapolis suburb of Bloomington. The Eagandale line is an ex-Milwaukee Road route that runs from Rosemount to industries in Eagan. You will also see two routes that originate in Northfield including the ex-Chicago Great Western line to Randolph and an in-cab experience on the trackage rights train to Faribault.

Progressive Rail also operates a warehouse facility in the Airlake Industrial Park in Lakeville. We see operations around the warehouse facility as the PGR serves several customers in the Industrial Park complex.

This railroad is truly spectacular! Watch all of the Progressive Rail action in Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 1!

Minnesota Railroads V 2: St. Croix Valley & Minnesota Northern

Join C. Vision Productions as we capture the action of short line and regional railroads operating in the land of 10,000 lakes!

In this volume, we feature the St. Croix Valley and the Minnesota Northern.

The St. Croix Valley Railroad runs on a portion of the ex-Northern Pacific Skally line that once ran from the Twin Cities to Duluth and Superior. We follow this railroad as it heads from its headquarters in Rush City to North Branch to retrieve loaded fertilizer cars. Then the train heads north to Hinckley to interchange its freight with the BNSF. You will then be amazed as we view the St. Croix Valley's green GP-9 pulling a private passenger car from Pine City to Rush City.

Then we head to the far northwestern part of the state and follow the Minnesota Northern. From Erskin, we ride along in the Minnesota Northern's caboose over the Canadian Pacific's tracks to Thief River Falls. After passing the historic Thief River Falls Depot, we follow the train and its GP-9 and GP-7 locomotives as they traverse the old Burlington Northern line to Warroad.

These two railroads put on a spectacular short line show! You won't want to miss this volume as C. Vision continues its look at Minnesota's Railroads!

Minnesota’s Railroads V 3: TC&W and MN Prairie Line

Volume 3 of Minnesota's Railroads takes you to the central part of the Land of 10,000 Lakes. First, C. Vision cameras follow the Ruebel Turn on the Twin Cities & Western's ex Milwaukee Road main line from Glencoe to Renville. On this line we follow two trains. One led with TC&W's GP-30 Cat #4300 and the other with a visiting Red River Valley & Western GP-15 Cat. This line runs through the heart of Minnesota's Corn Belt. Many small towns with classic grain elevators keep the Twin Cities & Western busy with grain movement along with a sugar beet factory in Renville. We also get a glimpse of operations between Minneapolis and Glencoe including a slug CF-7 leading a transfer.

The sister company of the TC&W is the Minnesota Prairie Line. This railroad runs on ex Minneapolis & St. Louis track from its connection with the TC&W at Cologne to Wood River. We follow the entire route as two GP-10's and another visiting Red River Valley & Western GP-20 Cat haul freight over the system. Along with the TC&W line, the Minnesota Prairie Line tracks run through many small towns and pass two restored M&St.L depots. You will love the sound of those GP-10's as they growl while climbing out of the Minnesota River valley at Morton!

Two classic Minnesota railroads wearing the familiar University of Minnesota colors of maroon and gold put on an awesome display of railroading for you to enjoy in Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 3!

Minnesota’s Railroads V 4: MN Southern & Otter Tail Valley

Volume 4 of Minnesota's Railroads visits two unique short lines. In the southwest corner of the state, the Minnesota Southern operates over former Chicago, St. Paul, Minneapolis and Omaha rails. Based in Luverne, this railroads hauls mostly ethanol and liquid feed from locations in Luverne, to interchanges with the BNSF at Manley on the west end and with the Union Pacific in Worthington on the east end. A sharp looking GP-10, lettered for the short lines predecessor Nobles Rock Railroad, puts on a great show as it hauls several tank cars across the system. We follow operations on the Minnesota Southern as it makes runs from Luverne to Manley and to Worthington. Rolling hills, farmlands and electric generating windmills create marvelous Midwest backdrops for the Minnesota Southern.

Then we head to the west central part of the land of 10,000 lakes and document the operations of Rail America's Otter Tail Valley Railroad. Traveling over ex-Great Northern Rails, the OTVR runs from its home base of Fergus Falls to Moorhead, where they interchange with the BNSF in the adjacent town of Dilworth. This railroad uses first generation high hood four axle locomotives on rails that are good for 40 miles per hour! You will love the sound of these classy old "geeps" as they work hard hauling and switching main line freight! Plenty of BNSF action is also captured while the train is making its interchange at Dilworth.

The Minnesota Southern and the Otter Tail Valley combine unique operations, along with unique equipment and exemplify everything that Midwest railroading is all about! Enjoy the action these two railroads offer in Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 4!

Minnesota’s Railroads V 5: N. Lines, Cloquet Term., NSSR

Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 5 continues C. Vision's tour of railroads operating in the Land of 10,000 Lakes! In this production, we visit 3 unique railroads. First is the newly formed Northern Lines Railway. This railroad operates over ex-BNSF rails in the St. Cloud area. An awesome site is the East Job that uses a Northern Lines painted caboose and crosses the Mississippi River Bridge near downtown. We also follow their ex-Belt Railway of Chicago GP-10's on the West Job to St. Joseph and a run on the Cold Spring Spur.

Another fabulous shortline is the Cloquet Terminal in Cloquet. Formerly known as the Duluth and Northeastern, this shortline uses aging SW-1 locomotives and an SW-1000 as they tend to freight car movement for the Sappi Paper Mill, Specialty Minerals and USG's ceiling tile plant. They also interchange traffic with the BNSF.

Then we show you a special treat compliments of the Lake Superior Railroad Museum. The LSRM operates the Northshore Scenic Railroad from Duluth to Two Harbors. In this segment, we document a special train that was put together for an annual "Railfan Weekend" excursion. The train includes restored Great Northern NW-5 number 192 and a restored GN wood caboose! You will also see LSRM's Duluth Missabe & Iron Range SD-18 and Soo Line GP-30 in action!

Minnesota’s Railroads V 6: N. Minnesota Commercial

Minnesota's Railroads, Volume 6 continues C. Vision's tour of railroads operating in the Land of 10,000 Lakes! In this production, we visit the Minnesota Commercial Railway. This short line carrier operates in the Twin Cities metropolitan area. Operating over 150 route miles, the Minnesota Commercial is the oldest and most connected new short line carrier in Minnesota.

The Commercial operates several jobs serving industries on lines once operated by the Minnesota Transfer Railway Company, along with operating on tracks leased by the Burlington Northern Santa Fe, Canadian Pacific and Union Pacific. The Commercial also interchanges with all of the railroads in the Minneapolis-St. Paul region. In this video, we follow 6 of the major jobs the Commercial operates, along with capturing some transfers.

This railroad is truly unique as it operates with second generation Dash 7 General Electric locomotives including B-23 dash 7's and a B-36 dash 7. If you are an Alco fan, this railroad has a treat for you! You will see one of the last two RS-27's in existence operating the Hennepin Job as well as a C424 teamed up with a slug working the yard.

Montana Rail Link "EMDs in the Rockies" The East End

What makes this MRL show different than other producers? 98% of trains shown are led with EMD power, 92% of the trains are led with Montana Rail Link Power and our videographer, Mike Savona, spent over 4 years and 30 trips to Montana to capture the footage for this show.

In Volume 1 of our coverage of the Montana Rail Link, we follow the railroad's mainline from Jones Junction, near Huntley, Montana, to Helena, over the MRL's 1st and 2nd Subdivisions. In addition to the mainline, the 5th, 6th, and 13th Subdivisions are also covered. On the mainline, trains are seen following the course of the beautiful Yellowstone River east of Livingston, climbing the steep grades of Bozeman Pass and Winston Hill, and traversing the tight curvature along the Missouri River. The 5th Subdivision was once part of Northern Pacific's Homestake Pass route, and we follow it along its entire length from Logan to Spire Rock. Along the way, the tracks pass through Jefferson Canyon, arguably one of the most scenic stretches of territory on the entire railroad. MRL's remaining branch lines are true survivors, with the 6th and 13th Subdivisions being no exception. On these lines, you'll enjoy seeing a truly different side of the railroad's operation.

MRL's SD-45 fleet returned to mainline service in 2014, and C. Vision was there to capture these impressive machines as they earned their keep on lease to BNSF. MRL's mix of old and new EMD locomotives put on an impressive show, and you'll enjoy seeing these well-maintained units operating in all types of service.

This program documents an exciting era on Montana Rail Link, and you'll see firsthand why this railroad is considered by many to be the "last best place". Come along with C. Vision Productions, as we tour the eastern portion of this fascinating railroad, in "Montana Rail Link, EMDs in the Rockies, Volume 1, the East End".

Montana Rail Link "EMDs in the Rockies" The West End

In Volume 2 of our coverage of the Montana Rail Link, we follow the railroad's mainline from Helena, Montana to Sandpoint, Idaho, over the MRL's 3rd and 4th Subdivisions. In addition to the mainline, the 9th and 10th Subdivisions are also covered. On the 3rd Sub, trains are seen as they negotiate the steep grades and tight curves of Mullan Pass. This is true mountain railroading, and MRL puts on an impressive show. We visit Missoula, and then take a quick tour of the 9th Subdivision, also known as the Darby or Bitterroot Branch. From DeSmet, we follow the 10th Subdivision to Paradise. The 10th Sub is home to Evaro Hill, and features some incredible scenery along the Flathead River. Next, we head back to DeSmet to cover the 4th Subdivision to Sandpoint, Idaho. Following the course of the Clark Fork River in western Montana, the 4th Sub is nothing short of spectacular. Near the far west end of the MRL, trains are seen as they travel along the pristine waters of Lake Pend Oreille, one of the most beautiful lakes Idaho has to offer.

Along with MRL's LM and ML trains, we also cover the railroad's west end local operations. The Darby, Paradise, and Gas Locals are all seen as they go about their assigned chores. MRL's fleet of blue EMDs has never looked better, and you'll enjoy seeing these units operating through some of the most scenic landscapes in the region. BNSF powered trains are also viewed, as they travel across the MRL system.

Come along with C. Vision Productions, as we tour the western portion of this fascinating railroad, in "Montana Rail Link, EMDs in the Rockies, Volume 2, the West End".

Moorhead Jct.

Moorhead Junction in Moorhead, Minnesota, is just across the border from Fargo, North Dakota. The Junction is where the Great Northern and Northern Pacific once crossed each other. Today, BNSF trains travel on both main lines making this a busy hot spot in the Fargo/Moorhead area.

Moorhead Junction consists of the BNSF's KO subdivision that runs from East Dilworth, Minnesota to Minot, North Dakota. This is the ex-Northern Pacific Main line and is a part of BNSF's northern transcontinental main line from Chicago to the Pacific Northwest. The large yard facilities in Dilworth lie just east of the junction. The KO sub also connects with the Jamestown Sub west of Fargo. Those tracks host mostly Powder River Coal trains.
The north south line is an ex-Great Northern route that splits into two subdivisions at Moorhead Junction. To the south is the Moorhead Sub that runs along the Red River Valley to Breckenridge, Minnesota. Also on the south end is OTV junction, which is another ex-GN line that is operated by short line Otter Tail Valley, from Moorhead to Fergus Falls, Minnesota. From the north is the Prosper Sub. This subdivision connects to the Hillsboro, Hunter, Clifford and Warwick Subdivisions before connecting back onto the KO Sub in Nolan, North Dakota.
Lots of train action was captured in the summer of 2010. A wide variety of trains from hot intermodals to coal, grain and locals make Moorhead Junction one of the best hot spots in the Midwest!

Newport

Newport is one of many railroading hot spots in the Twin Cities area and C. Vision takes you here for an extensive look at the operations through this suburban city. Located just southeast of St. Paul, Newport is the point where the ex-CB&Q and Milwaukee Road main lines come together, along with the old Rock Island Route. Today, trains from the BNSF and Canadian Pacific operate these tracks. Add in trackage rights trains from the Iowa Chicago & Eastern and the passage of Amtrak's Empire Builder, and you can see why many railfans flock to this location.

The old Milwaukee Road Dispatchers Tower still stands next to the tracks. From its new location next to Newport City Hall, a retired Milwaukee Road dispatcher gives us a tour and shares memories of his time working in the building. View trains from the tower, along with several awesome locations along the main line in Newport.

Along with the BNSF, CP, IC& E and Amtrak, foreign power such as Norfolk Southern, Canadian National and the Indiana Railroad make appearances. Plus, plenty of Soo Line and Santa Fe locomotives lead several trains.

Newport is an awesome train watching location and C. Vision brings it to you in this action packed program!

Norfolk Southern on the Wabash, Vol.1 “The Lafayette District”

Join C. Vision Productions as we take a tour of Norfolk Southern’s Lafayette District. Running on ex-Wabash rails, the Lafayette District runs from Decatur, Illinois to West Peru, Indiana. This line is a main artery for automobile and auto parts traffic traveling between Detroit, Michigan and Kansas City, Missouri.
Along with the autos, many other types of freight can be seen along this line including grain and coal.
Norfolk Southern has a wide variety of locomotive models and this program showcases many of them. Included are rebuilt SD60E’s, Caterpillar powered PR43C’s, C40-9’s, GEVO’s, SD-70ACe’s, Ex-Conrail C40-8W’s and SD60I’s with some still in Conrail Blue! Plus, special appearances of their New York Central and Lehigh Valley Heritage units. That’s not all! Nickel Plate Steam Locomotive number 765 is also captured on a special!
Lots of great small town settings, grain elevators and old style search light signals can be seen providing great video backdrops. Indiana's rebuilding of their highway 25 gives plenty of overpasses and an elevated perspective for many trains. And, watch trains pass through the city of Lafayette, which has no grade crossings.
This is one of Norfolk Southern’s hidden treasures. With footage captured from 2008 to 2013, we are sure you will enjoy the nearly 100 trains featured in “Norfolk Southern on the Wabash, Volume 1, The Lafayette District”!

Norfolk Southern's Chicago Line, Vol. 1

No other mainline into Chicago from the east boasts as much rail traffic or variety as that of Norfolk Southern’s Chicago Line. This high-density double track mainline sees a great deal of moves everyday, from unit oil and ethanol moves to hot intermodals to general freights and everything in between. Additional moves from Amtrak’s Michigan and Eastern Services bring a good deal of passenger flavor to this corridor and we’ll see them too.

Pooled power is plentiful, and you’ll see examples of this from roads like Union Pacific, Canadian National, Ferromex and others. Haulage moves from Canadian Pacific and CSX also make appearances on their mains. Norfolk Southern’s Heritage Power also finds its way into the production, and we’ll see several of them on our journey, including the Pennsylvania, Lehigh Valley, Reading, Norfolk Southern, Central New Jersey and others.

Shot in all seasons of the year, traffic will be seen in all kinds of conditions, from warm summer days to the cold, blowing winter snow squalls typical for this region of the Midwest. Endangered signals dating back to predecessors Pennsylvania and New York Central also form great backdrops for trains, at a time when NS is just starting to renew a lot of the lineside signal hardware on this western end of the system.

From urban railroading to gritty steel mill scenes to rural Indiana country sides, these places all combine to typify what this busy line is all about. Come witness the action as Volume 1 commences on Norfolk Southern’s Chicago Line, Chicago to Elkhart, by C. Vision Productions.

Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern
A South Dakota Success

The Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern Railroad began operations in 2014 over the west end of the former DM&E system. Since its inception, the RCP&E has made many positive changes in the operation and working environment, and has begun investing heavily in its equipment and physical plant. All of this has resulted in increased carloadings, as well as a happy, safe workforce. C. Vision Productions takes you on a tour of this dynamic railroad from one end to the other, visiting many of the route's best locations. Beginning in Tracy, Minnesota, we follow the mainline across the Huron, Pierre, and PRC Subdivisions, eventually leading us to Rapid City, South Dakota. We don't leave out the branch and secondary routes either, as the Mansfield, Onida, and Black Hills Subdivisions are also covered. RCP&E's SD40-2 fleet looks and sounds great, as the locomotives haul heavy trains of grain, ethanol, bentonite clay, and cement across the railroad. From the glacial lakes and prairies of the east, to the river valleys and Black Hills of the west, the railroad travels through some diverse and surprisingly impressive scenery. Don't miss this look at the Midwest's newest regional railroad, in C. Vision Production's "Rapid City, Pierre & Eastern, a South Dakota Success".

Rio Grande Narrow Gauge in the 1950’s

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

Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950’s in the San Joaquin Valley of California

C. Vision Productions presents the Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950’s in the San Joaquin Valley of California from the films of Doctor Wayland Paul Matt. Doctor Matt was a railroad doctor for both the Santa Fe and Southern Pacific in Bakersfield California during the 1950’s and 60’s. This gave him the opportunity to photograph many steam locomotives in the west.

This spectacular footage includes many of S.P.’s steamers including Cab Forwards, GS-4’s, Baldwin F-4’s, F-5’s, C-9’s, SP built 'Mountain' MT-4’s, Baldwin narrow gauge 4-6-0 number 18 and much more!

You will see these great steam locomotives in charge of both passenger and freight trains in the San Joaquin Valley of California with many shots pacing trains on Highway 99 near Bakersfield. We also visit Tehachapi Loop and great action from the yard in Bakersfield. Also included is the narrow gauge line in the Owens Valley with ex-Nevada California Oregon Baldwin number 18! We even see workers transferring ties from a standard gauge car to a narrow gauge car in Owenyo.

Take yourself back to the final years of steam operations on the Southern Pacific. Great memories are captured in Southern Pacific Steam in the 1950’s!

The Best of SOO V. 2

Shoreham Hill After the Milwaukee Road Merger

Following the Soo/Milwaukee Road merger, the Soo’s Twin Cities to Chicago Main was downgraded to a secondary route. The Soo’s double track main line through Northeast Minneapolis had been dormant for most of the winter of 1985. On January 11, 1986, the Soo ran a Roseport bound potash extra via Shoreham Hill. Once again, the sounds of classic EMD power would fill the neighborhoods of Northeast Minneapolis! Videographer Bob Rivard covers this classic action from the years 1986 and 1987.

SD-40’s, GP-30’s, high hood GP-7 & 9’s, SW-1200’s and Soo Line cabooses in classic Soo Line Red and White colors are abound in this show along with many other locomotive models. Mix in post merger power of Milwaukee Road units and cabooses, and you get a colorful array of locomotives in this program. You will be amazed watching and hearing most of these trains being pushed with helpers ranging from GP-9’s to MP-15’s! Other roads appear including the Chicago and North Western and Burlington Northern.

Bob even captures the last of the Soo GP-30's career in Twin Cities transfer service in 1986.

Trains Across the Midwest, V. 7

Throughout the United States, railroading is colorful and exciting, with the Midwest being no exception. C. Vision Productions continues its look at great railroad action within this diverse region in "Trains Across the Midwest, Volume 7".

In this installment, we will view trains operating through four states. First, we travel to Kansas to view operations on the Kyle Railroad. We were on the hunt for the road's former Southern Pacific SD45T-2s, and were rewarded on several occasions. The deep bass and growl of these units is something to behold! Next, we drop down to BNSF's La Junta Sub in western Kansas and eastern Colorado to see a few trains bouncing across the plains over the route's increasingly rough jointed rail. We then travel to the Iron Range of northeastern Minnesota to view DM&IR, CN, Cliffs Erie's former LTV operation, and BNSF trains during several beautiful fall days during the years of 2004 and 2010. We then head south to BNSF's Staples Subdivision to view some select trains with classic motive power. A freshly rebuilt SD45-2 and a GP50 make separate appearances leading trains in this segment. Next, we head for North Dakota to view action on the former GN secondary route between Fargo and Minot via Grand Forks across the Hillsboro and Devils Lake Subdivisions. Older EMD power, former GN signals, code line, and some high-speed jointed rail, make for some exciting scenes. Before heading to Minnesota, we briefly cover the Jamestown Sub in eastern North Dakota, viewing a few more trains with interesting EMD power. Next, we take a sampling of trains on the Morris, Marshall, and Wayzata Subdivisions to round out the show. Several scenes of former Oakway SD60s in their final months of service on BNSF are also included. If you like older railroad infrastructure, EMD 645-powered locomotives, or just Midwest railroading, you'll love this program. Enjoy it all, in "Trains Across the Midwest, Volume 7".

Wisconsin & Southern, Volume 1 "The Northern Division"

The year is 1980 and the ailing Milwaukee Road has finished shedding thousands of miles of non-profitable secondary lines to evade falling into the history books forever. Unfortunately, that would come 5 years later. From the thousands of miles shed some would never see a train again. However, there were a few that had enough business to hold their own. One of those lines was the former Milwaukee Road’s Northern Division in Wisconsin, which consisted of 147 miles of railroad stretching from North Milwaukee to Horicon. Also, lines branching west to Cambria and north to Oshkosh and the segment going west from Brandon to Markesan. This whole division was on a list for abandonment since 1977 and with help of the Southwest Wisconsin Rail Users and Development Association; a new railroad was born on April 29th, 1980. From rags to riches we bring you the Wisconsin & Southern!

In this volume, we cover the WSOR’s Northern Division. This portion of the Wisconsin and Southern includes the Milwaukee, Oshkosh, Mayville, Cambria, Markesan and Plymouth Subdivisions.

Motive power includes many of the WSOR’s MP-15’s, GP-38’s and SD 40-2’s. Most of which are painted in their attractive red and silver paint scheme. Also included are recently acquired units from the BNSF and Nationals de Mexico. We even catch an inspection train with the WSOR’s elite E-9’s!

From the rich, fertile farm fields to the bustling city of Milwaukee, you will enjoy watching this vibrant regional railroad working across America’s Dairyland!
