With footage from pre- and post-merger Santa Fe across the Midwest we see the Santa Fe in '"full warbonnet'" mode. Even post-merger trains feature pre-merger paint. Shot from 1994 to 1997 we feature a variety of trains and locations, including Galesburg, Fort Madison, Kansas City, Corwith. Joliet, McCook, Blue Island and South Bend.
We'll get a close-up look at the latest ATSF motive power, the Warbonnet dressed SD75M (including a quick cab visit). Go back in time and see the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe in the Midwest.
Midwest Video Productions was most active in the mid-to-late 1990s when mergers were happening and flags were falling at a fast clip. This video was shot using professional equipment of the time, but is not up to the clarity of today's high-definition video. It is however an excellent snapshot of an important time in the nation's railroad history.
