    Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway DVD

    Minneapolis & St. Louis Railway

    The M&St.L, a line with transcontinental ambitions and a selling point of avoiding Chicago congestion, has been gone since 1960. Yet, it still remains a fascinating railroad.

    The narrated video, through photos, slides, postcards and some 8 mm film, follows the railroad from its operations in the Twin Cities to western South Dakota, its primary mainline to Peoria, Illinois and secondary line to Des Moines, Iowa. There are also a railfan trips from the Twin Cities to New Ulm and Hutchinson, Minnesota.

    The video concludes with photos of steam & diesel locomotives, self-propelled passenger equipment, freight cars, maintenance equipment, train wrecks, snow-fighting equipment & scenes and memorabilia.

    The DVD video is 40 minutes long and the self-starting CD book has 215 images. Also on the CD are passenger and employee timetables, a 1938 Industrial Guide, annual reports, brochures, advertisements in Railway Age and a 1960 railfan trip booklet (all in PDF format). CD contents can be printed out.
