An Historic venture to visit the St. Louis Union Station, and other locations in and around St. Louis, for a weekend of train chasing.
To compliment the occasion, rail transport from Detroit to St. Louis was via Norfolk and Western's night train, the 'St. Louis Limited'. Convenient night travel allowed for two enjoyable days of railfan delights in the Gateway City.
During this time turmoil was entering the passenger train services with the advent of the loss of U.S. Postal contracts and the potential of a reorganized quasi-national passenger train service.
Regardless of the future, it was still a good time to sense the pulse of passenger traffic and the St. Louis Sojourn was the 'call' in the spring of '68. This spectacular DVD, digitally transferred from crisp 16 mm color film (with a couple of minutes of b&w), is from the camera of noted railfan photographer Emery Gulash. The following railroads are portrayed in this DVD: Alton and Southern, Baltimore and Ohio, Chicago, Burlington and Quincy, Chicago and Eastern Illinois, Gulf, Mobile and Ohio, Illinois Central, Louisville and Nashville, Missouri Pacific, Norfolk & Western, Penn Central, Southern Railway Co., TRRA-Terminal Railroad Association.
