Ride along in the locomotive cab on a BNSF vehicle train. Pentrex has viewers inside a GE Dash 9 C44. Experience what it is like to travel across Southeastern Kansas. Board BNSF train V-OKCMCI at the crew change location in Arkansas City. The 225 mile route covers some of the Arkansas City Sub, complete Douglas Sub, and much of the Emporia Sub to Argentine Yard. See a plethora of trains from the ground as well.
Detailed narration will have the viewer informed regarding the train movements. Sharp camerawork and pro audio gives a feeling of being there, with the BNSF crew.
Engineer Kevin Lister gets us safely underway.
Veteran railfans likely have watched some cab rides before. This show is much more than a typical locomotive mounted in the cab routine. Ever changing viewpoints are the ticket.
Our vehicle train stretches out on a curve.
Basic maps are used to outline the areas traveled.
Houston to Galesburg.
Matfield Green is the scenic area in the show. Hills and curving trackage are unexpected on a show from Kansas.
A Phoenix to Willow Springs train creeps by on a long passing siding, at Bazar.
Conductor Brandon is the man in charge. Here, he communicates with the dispatcher.
Meets are plentiful. Train Z- WSPALT is another of the many Willow Springs moves.
Post merger BNSF has a variety of paint schemes on the locomotives.
Emporia subdivision is very busy. This container freight is fronted by a now rare lash-up of solid Burlington Northern, Cascade Green power.
Goin’ to Kansas City is an outstanding show by Pentrex. It is highly recommended. Most railfans should find this program enjoyable. Older children might find it interesting. This is one of the best from Pentrex.
