UP's Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa DVD

“UP’s Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa” shows over 24 hours of action on UP’s Clinton Subdivision both sides of Belle Plaine, Iowa in April of 2012. Part of UP’s Central Corridor between Chicago and Ogden, this former Chicago and North Western main line hums with activity in spite of the downturn in traffic due to the recent recession, the warm winter, and UP’s penchant for running longer trains. UP recently added centralized traffic control to this line along with double crossovers about every ten miles. Wayside signals were also added, doing away with the North Western’s left hand current of traffic running. Belle Plaine is 111 miles west of Clinton and 86 miles east of Boone. In contrast to most of the former North Western main across Iowa, the line east of Belle Plaine has several restrictive cures and grades as it heads into the Iowa River Valley at Belle Plaine. “UP’s Central Corridor in Eastern Iowa” is a two disk set and is 1 hour and 47 minutes in length.  This DVD has the option of being watched with or without narration.
