    Rock Island's Mid-Continent Route - In The 1960's DVD

    C. Vision Productions takes you back to the 1960's to view original operations on the Rock Island Mid-continent Route. Captured from the film camera of Louis Schaefer, you will see The Rock operating between St. Paul, Minnesota and Mason City, Iowa along with a few other Iowa locations.


    Passenger trains are seen led with E-3's and E-8's. Joint power from CB&Q is also captured on the Zephyr Rocket. Freight trains are led with a variety of Rock Island power including F-7's, Alco FA1's, GP-7's and GE U-Boats. Paint schemes include Maroon's, Red's and the Light Blue's.


    Louis also captured trackage rights trains from the Illinois Central and Chicago & North Western that operated on the Mid-continent Route. One train was led with Chicago Great Western locomotives and another with all CNW F Units!


    As an added bonus, Louis captures several scenes of the late short line, Minneapolis Northfield & Southern operating in and around Northfield, Minnesota.
