A Tribute to Wisconsin Central Volume 1 DVD
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. Maroon and gold, colorful pooled power from many other roads, predecessor SD45 power from Santa Fe and Burlington Northern plus haulage rights trains of CN, WICT and WSOR make this one truly great production to see. It's all here in "A tribute to the Wisconsin Central, Volume 1!"
