This video was posted on the YOU TUBE web site on Sunday 07 February 2010 by "FASTRAINS 56", who recorded it on Friday 05 February 2010 in Galesburg, Illinois.

I awarded it "FIVE STARS", the highest possible viewer rating at the YOU TUBE web site.

The passenger train is the AMTRAK "California Zephyr", which I've ridden on several occasions, and which I highly recommend!

It's especially nice if you can afford the extra money to reserve a First Class sleeper compartment, which has the added bonus of also including all of your meals.

The freight train, pulled by Burlington Northern Sante Fe locomotives, is a "Z" train, which is the highest express category.
