...BOTH Part ONE AND Part TWO the Special Train...
STEEL RAILS-PRIVATE VARNISH VOLUME 1
They came from all over the country, some of the grandest vehicles to roll over dry land. Private railway cars, once the exclusive domain of the rich and famous, came together in October, 1994. They gathered at Chicago to be made up into a colorful train of private varnish to run to St. Louis's grand restored Union Station.
Once they were in the Gateway City, nearly two dozen of the cars, together for the convention of the American Association of Private Railroad Car Owners, Inc., were opened to the public. At the end of the festivities, another special train returned the cars to the Windy City via the Burlington Northern's spectacular line alongside the Mississippi River. The best of the fall foliage season heightened the magnitude of this special train of many colors.
As the official videographer at the convention, Green Frog was there. In the air. On the ground. At trackside. Inside the cars. Behind the scenes. In the kitchens. In the dining rooms. In the lounges. In the domes. In the sleeping sections. Join us for this one hour grand tour of Steel Rails Private Varnish.
