    Nice to see them preserve and still use only the finest from the hay day of railways.

    Wow… That observation car at the rear is like a living ghost from the past!!! Amazed that one still exists. God bless the people with the passion and the vision to keep one alive…

    You guys do such great detail jobs. Can you design your own version of the hyawatha? Its a timeless design.

    Nice train but I think it was better looking when I rode it from Seattle to Chicago in September 1947, returning from a tour of duty in Tokyo. All that stainless (or aluminum) gets a bit boring looking after a while. It was in coach as the army was paying for it but semi luxury as there were not too many trains around with roomy and comfortable recliner seats then. Wish I had the money to ride it in comfort one of these days again but I can always dream.

    Super Dome–one of America's great contributions to the world's railroad scene.

    That is a truly interesting train, the cars at the back in particular. Awesome urban scenery, too. Excellent footage! Best regards:)

    Not much empire building going on lol. It's doesn't look good with being punctual. Slowed down by freight. They don't own many miles of rail lines. No room for expansion. For a first world country, rail transport is going backwards compared to other countries …

    I rode the Hiawatha in the 50s from Chicago to points north in Wisconsin. Very nice.

    Somehow the magic of a transcontinental railroad trip is diminished by the knowledge of a Genesis engine at the head of the train.

    Great sound capture! I could feel my sub-woofer shaking the floor when the loco passed by.

    Thanks for that. I rode the Milwaukee Olympian Hiawatha from Chicago to Seattle with my parents several times in the late 50s and early 60s. The Milwaukee was quite a railroad, very inventive and resourceful with both their engines and rail cars, really because they had to be for financial reasons.

    No, Ed was not referring to the guy picking himself at the very end.

    It's so awesome Passenger trains running in, out and about a major city. What a concept. Wakie, wakie Detroit. If Chicago can do it why not here.

    I looked for your vantage point on Google Earth and it is now gone. This stretch of tracks (the straight between the two curves) where you are standing is now covered with the beginnings of a skyscraper being built over the tracks. It's called the Park at River Point.
