This is a bonus episode in the eighteen part Blair Kooistra trilogy as he describes in detail his stunning 27 minute black-and-white video tribute to the west end of the Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul & Pacific Railroad and its employees, photographed during its last years of operation, 1977-1980.

Blair returned decades later to the Pacific Northwest to complete the stories of the people who made the Milwaukee Road special. This is a great companion piece to a video that makes railroading more romantic than Harlequin romance novel.
