Glorious! One of my very best train videos. Stunning railroad photography, especially the many trains just before/after sunrise or sunset. The backdrop of our Great Midwest in winter is indescribably beautiful (at least for those of us who love that part of the country). Filmed in February 2013, it follows the world�s busiest freight railroad, the Union Pacific from O�Fallon, Nebraska (west of North Platte) to Gibbon Junction (east of Kearny) in the days before, during and after a winter storm, over 2 hours of train after train. Highball Productions gets it exactly right by displaying just enough of each train (from varying angles) that you can feel it�s a long freight, but not boring you by showing every single identical coal hopper. One curious feature is that the coverage is from west to east, not in chronological order, so you alternating scenes of lead-gray skies before the storm, swirling snow, and crystal clear days after the storm. One caveat: this is a fairly dry season in a dry area � not that much snow, don�t expect to see any flangers or rotary plows. I enthusiastically recommend this video and, as a companion, Pentrex�s Union Pacific�s Triple Track Main, photographed a few years earlier on hot summer days.
