Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Step back to 1990 and tour the entire Kansas City Southern system from Kansas City, Missouri to Port Arthur, Texas and over the former Louisiana & Arkansas line from New Orleans to Shreveport and across the Texas Division towards Dallas.

Thrilling action on the KCS reveals heavy coal and grain trains snaking through the Ouachita Mountains in Arkansas as helpers shove hard on the rear. Manifest freights are seen grinding their way over the summit of Rich Mountain. Elsewhere locals are racing against the clock before their time expires while yard switchers toil at their unending tasks.

Every class of engine running on the KCS in early 1990 is seen in action here. Its well-known white paint scheme was transitioning to the new gray and you ll see examples of both. In a grand finale, a hot train with one of the KCS F-Unit slugs sprints across the rolling Texas Division. Here'sa great opportunity to revisit one of America'sfavorite railways!

As with all the Pentrex videos in my library, this is a MUST HAVE. You'll see dirty white EMD locomotives pulling freight across some beautiful scenery. Many of the locomotive are equppied with Leslie RS5Ts, the king of locomotive airhorns. Another neat thing in this video are the rare SD40X locomotives. You'll see them in pusher service as well as working the headend. This is a must for any KCS fan!

Kansas City Southern, the smallest of the Class 1's is a vibrant railroad with plenty of action, and some very interesting railroading. In this video, we are treated to some yard work, local action, and mainline action. Throw in a few visitors like Gateway Western, and a few other shortlines with their older power, and you see a complete video at it's finest. Up and over some Arkansas mountains, with a pusher service, some train meets, and great scenery. All of KCS's engine types are see in action, including an old F-unit. What a treat that the other Class 1's no longer have in service. The chemical industry is big time service in the south, and we see a lot of action in operation. Norfolf Southern and Southern Pacific power makes appearances. We even get to see a caboose still being used. I have been very pleased with the purchase of this video. An over all great video that is a must for all railfans to own.
