Pentrex takes you to South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin for more of the best in Midwestern railroading!
We visit several shortlines including the Minnesota Central, Dakota Southern, and Nebkota. Pentrex captured Nebkota's beautiful A-B-A set of F-units just days before it was sold to Canadian Pacific for use on executive trains.
Class I railroads create an abundance of action in the Midwest. Union Pacific is one of the busiest on its ex-Chicago & North Western mainline through Iowa. Burlington Northern Santa Fe is not far behind on its transcontinental mainline between Chicago and the Pacific Northwest. Canadian Pacific makes an appearance on its former Soo Line trackage with a variety of power from "Red Barn" SD40-2Fs to newly delivered AC4400s.
From jointed rail to ribbon rail, the Midwest offers a great variety of shortline and mainline action. It's all here for you in The Best of the Midwest Volume II!

Best of the Midwest, Vol. # 2 is a continuation of Vol. # 1. Starting with some classic F-Units on the Nebkota Railway, we see some excellent shortline action at low speeds. A very interesting railway indeed in some picturesque landscape. On to the Dakota Southern and Minnesota Central. The action continues to get better with the old engines that have survived on shortlines. Then on to some Class 1's, as we see BNSF, UP, and the Canadian Pacific. Everything the midwest can offer is here. High speed mainline to the shortlines who run just twice the speed of a good jogger. The regions covered are scenic, full of the agricultural services that feed the railroads. There is plenty of variety for power lashups. A really great addition to anyone's collection.
