Windy City Rails Volume 3 - Blue Island Jct. DVD
C. Vision's tour of railroads in and around the Chicagoland area continues in Windy City Rails, Volume 3.
In this program, videographer Marshall Beecher takes his cameras to multiple mainline crossings at the always busy Blue Island Junction. This location, most often distinguished by the big steel bridges spanning the Calumet Sag Channel, has a multitude of activity from host roads Indiana Harbor Belt, CSX, Canadian National and Metra's Rock Island District, which passes over the south end of the junction. Throw in a wide variety of pool power and the appearance of run-through moves by roads Canadian Pacific, Union Pacific and BNSF and you will see why Blue Island Junction is such a great Chicagoland hotspot.
Due to the unique track arrangement of the junction, parallel moves from various roads can be seen occurring simultaneously, a sight our cameras had the opportunity to catch on many visits. In addition, short line and regional action was found, including appearances from the Iowa Interstate and Chicago Rail Link. Add in predecessor power from the UP, BNSF and the CN, and you will witness the cornucopia of action that this legendary hotspot is known for.
For a colorful spectrum of freight and passenger action, Blue Island Junction cannot be beat!
