A TRIBUTE TO THE ILLINOIS CENTRAL

Default Title: $25.95 USD

The Illinois Central Railroad, which is also referred to as the Main Line of Mid-America, ran in the central United States from Chicago to New Orleans along with many other branch lines. The Illinois Central became a part of the Canadian National Railway in 1998.  A time when many class one’s were finding merging partners. In this production Marshall Beecher along with William Beecher Junior, Mike Savona and Chris Laskowski, capture the IC’s black beauties hauling freight along the IC system and beyond. Marshall captures the Illinois Central before and after the CN merger in the mid to late 1990’s on its main line from Chicago to Humboldt, Illinois. William, Mike and Chris join Marshall following the Illinois Central in several other areas.  Included is a portion of IC’s Iowa Division from Galena, Illinois to Raymond, Iowa.  Then we finish the show watching post CN merger trains on former Wisconsin Central and Green Bay & Western lines led with IC locomotives.

This show features many of the Illinois Central’s locomotive power that was persistent on its main line trains.  Locomotive models shown include E-9’s, SD-20’s, SD-40’s, SD-40 dash 2’s, SD-70’s, GP-38 dash 2’s and GP-40R’s.  Along with the IC, other road power is shown including Amtrak, Conrail, Chicago and North Western and Burlington Northern.  IC’s former electric commuter trains, now operated by Metra are also featured.

From the bustling city of Chicago to the farm fields of the upper Midwest, you will enjoy seeing this fallen flag hauling fast freight on the Main Line of Mid-America!
