CN's former Illinois Central Chicago Subdivision DVD

CN's former Illinois Central Chicago Subdivision DVD

This video shows over twenty-four hours of action in October of 2018 on the Canadian National’s historic, former Illinois Central main line south of Chicago – the first railroad to utilize land grants as a means of enabling construction and, for a brief time, the longest railroad in the world at the time of its completion in 1856.  CN’s Chicago subdivision, which stretches from the junction with their line to Iowa at Sixteenth Street in Chicago to Leverette Junction, just north of Champaign, was Hunter Harrison’s proving ground for his precision scheduled railroading practices in the early 1990s and today hosts many long CN freights, Amtrak’s mini-corridor to Carbondale and the City of New Orleans.  65 minutes.  This DVD can be watched with or without narration.
