Across grassland prairies, rolling plains, over immense bridges and through scenic badlands, the rail lines criss-crossing Americaís Heartland carry the freight that nourishes a continent and beyond. In this presentation you will see railroads at work in the late summer of 3 separate years. Countless locations are covered as we bring you the drama on three class one operations along with numerous short line and regional railroads. Agriculture developed these railroads and many still depend on it, however the need for energy supplies keeps many lines polished with coal from the Powder River basin and oil from the Bakken oil fields in Northwestern North Dakota and nearby Canada.

As North Dakota offers an assortment of rail operations, with several mainlines crossing through a vast state that is one of Americaís least populated, our coverage within is extensive. However, we will also explore operations in six other states, which can be described as a region known as Americaís Heartland!

BNSF's Nebraska Coal Conveyors
Action on the Sand Hills Sub & Crawford Hill

FROM ALLIANCE, NEBRASKA, BNSF'S SAND HILLS SUBDIVISION MOVES HIGH VOLUMES OF POWDER RIVER BASIN COAL TO THE EAST AND OTHER REGIONS. IN THIS PROGRAM, YOU'LL SEE TRAINS FROM A VARIETY OF LOCATIONS, MAINLY ON THE WESTERN (AND MORE SCENIC) PORTION OF THE LINE. THEN ON THE BUTTE SUBDIVISION, HEAVY, LOUD & INTENSE WOULD BE THE BEST WAY TO DESCRIBE THE TRAINS AS THEY CLIMB FOR 14 MILES OUT OF CRAWFORD, AND ARE CHALLENGED BY THE PINE RIDGE ESCARPMENT & THE DOUBLE HORSESHOE OF CRAWFORD HILL. TRAINS THAT OFTEN EXCEED 15,000 TONS FACE A GRADE OF 1.55 PERCENT, AND MANNED HELPERS ARE REQUIRED. VIDEOGRAPHER DAN MILLETTE RECORDED THE DRAMA IN FULL HIGH DEFINITION VIDEO FROM EARTH-SHAKING GROUND LEVEL SHOTS TO BEAUTIFUL PANORAMIC OVERLOOKS!

BURLINGTON
NORTHERN FINALE

-POWDER RIVER COAL-
In the months right after the merger with the Santa Fe, Hal Pantti explored Burlington Northern's "Coal Country". Beginning at Lincoln, Nebraska, Hal traveled to Alliance. Then he followed a loop, traveling over the Angora, Valley, Canyon, Orin, Black Hills, Edgemont and Butte Subdivisions, finally arriving back in Alliance for the return trip home. In this program although the BNSF had just formed, you'll witness the final months of what still looked like true BN action in this region. As the Union Pacific shared the Orin Sub, you will see UP trains as well as UP power, which often pooled with BN power. Plenty of great locations!

BURLINGTON
NORTHERN FINALE

-MIDWEST MAINLINES-

In the months right after the merger with the Santa Fe, Hal Pantti explored two of Burlington Northernís most important main lines, the ex-Northern Pacific from Eastern Montana into Minnesota, and the ex-Chicago, Burlington & Quincy from Galesburg, Illinois to Lincoln, Nebraska. Both lines became major arteries for the coal from the Powder River Basin into the Burlington Northern era. While the BNSF was in itís infancy, the footage that Hal shot is just about pure BN. In this program youíll see a variety of the power that BN operated and the trains it pulled from a nice selection of locations!
