From the Twin Ports to the Twin Cities Volume 2 DVD
C. Vision Productions returns to the Burlington Northern Santa Fe's Hinckley Subdivision! We last visited this line in 1998. Several things have changed since our last video and in late 2005, we decided to revisit this fascinating line in all four seasons!
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!
From the bustling metropolis of the Twin Cities to the vast scenery of the north woods, you won't want to miss this show. Two hours of exciting railroad action from the Twin Ports to the Twin Cities!
