This video footage from the LuVerne Andreessen Collection focuses on the early years of the Burlington Northern Railroad. Much of the footage was shot in 1970, and primarily features operations on the former Chicago, Burlington & Quincy between Galesburg IL and St Paul MN. Passenger operations are featured with a variety of pre-Amtrak train sets, as well as freight operations in the same area. This DVD is produced and sold by the Iowa Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, and is available from their website.
