prairies, rolling plains, over immense bridges and through scenic
badlands, the rail lines criss-crossing America’s Heartland carry the
freight that nourishes a continent and beyond. In this presentation you
will see railroads at work in the late summer of 3 separate years.
Countless locations are covered as we bring you the drama on three class
one operations along with numerous short line and regional railroads.
Agriculture developed these railroads and many still depend on it,
however the need for energy supplies keeps many lines polished with coal
from the Powder
River basin and oil from the Bakken oil
fields in Northwestern North Dakota and nearby Canada.
As North Dakota offers an assortment of rail operations, with
several mainlines crossing through a vast state that is one of
America’s least populated, our coverage within is extensive.
However, we will also explore operations in six other states, which
can be described as a region known as America’s Heartland!
- BNSF over many bridges & trestles
- Canadian Pacific's ex-SOO Line through
- Union Pacific's triple-track mainline in
- ALCO's on the Arkansas & Missouri
- Shortlines & Regionals
- and so much more!
