Belt Railway of Chicagos West End DVD
The West End of the Beltís Clearing Yard serves the C&NW, Southern Pacific, Burlington Northern, Wisconsin Central, Canadian Pacific/Soo Line, CSX, Canadian National and the Indiana Harbor Belt! And of course, the BRCís own jobs.
This was all daily fare in 1996. Today half this list are fallen flags. Letís go back to a more colorful railroad time and see the moves and motive power involved. The Belt runs with ALCOs while EMDís SD70M and GEís AC4400CW models show up on various trains. We even see a SD70M in Susquehanna colors.
Please note: This is a wonderful look at an important time in our railroad history, especially for BRCís ALCOs, which are now gone. However this was shot on less than ideal equipment in the late 1990ís. Do not expect high-def video. These scenes are no longer available to us railfans and the narration is a great look at railroad operations.
