Join C. Vision Productions as our cameras head trackside around Chicago in Windy City Rails, Volume 8 - "Downtown to the Airport." As the name implies, our main areas of focus will include locations near Downtown Chicago and the very busy network of rails that comprise the near northwest side of the city, many within a short distance of O'Hare International Airport. Along the way you will witness urban Class 1 switchers plying the back streets of the city, view high-density passenger railroading and even catch a host of passenger specials along the way, at some locations that are "off limits" to the casual railfan photographer. The near northwest side of town is rife with the colorful action of roads Canadian Pacific, Canadian National, Union Pacific, Metra and the Indiana Harbor Belt. See brand-new IHB Gensets kicking cars in their Norpaul Yard and view CP's aging locomotive fleet, with many units wearing Soo Line, IC&E and DM&E liveries. Pooled and run-through power from roads NS, Ferromex and CSX, a rainbow of interesting lease power and a look at the last of Metra's six-axle F40C's make this one outstanding show. Two and a half years of footage have gone into this production, be sure not to miss it! Freights, locals, passengers and passenger specials can all be found in Windy City Rails, Volume 8 "From Downtown to the Airport".

A very enjoyable show. Great variety of motive power, Soo Line SD60M's UP SD59MX units (rebuilt SD60M's) just painted, a few shots of old F40C's on commuter trains, Even a shot of NS F Units, along with many CN, CP and UP trains, including CN Cowl units and ex. IC SD70's. You won't get bored with this show.
