Varsity Day at Rondout
Runtime: 46 Minutes
On June 12, 2016, Advanced Approach Videos made a trip to Rondout, IL to catch Nickel Plate Road Berkshire 765 on its Varsity Excursion from Glenview, IL to Janesville, WI. While most of the crowd followed the train, we stayed in Rondout to catch the mainline action provided by Metra, Canadian Pacific and Amtrak. Even though we visited on a Sunday, we were rewarded with a colorful parade of power and equipment. Rondout is still a ideal location for train watching in the Chicago area. Join us in the first of our Chicago Hot Spots Series.
