Trains of the Heartland - As filmed by David E. Cash

Out of stock. This DVD is out of production and no longer available.

In the late 1960s and early 1970s, David E. Cash, of Carthage, MO, set out with an 8mm video camera to film the last of the great railroads that served the tri-state area of Missouri, Kansas and Oklahoma. In the process, he captured rare footage of the Missouri Pacific, Frisco, Kansas City Southern, MKT and other roads in action.

David, who recenlty passed away, was an avid model railroader and railfan. He was well known for these pursuits in the tri-state area.

Personal comment from Kevin Love: As a young man, I was privileged to meet David. I remember seeing him with his video camera filming the MP and the SLSF in my hometown of Carthage, MO. Also,I was also able to visit his home and view his model railroad. I have viewed this DVD many times and I can readily say that it was a worthwhile investment. As a former employee of the MP in Carthage, this video brings back fond memories. In fact, I am fairly certain that I was the head brakeman on one of the trains that is part of this offering. You will not be disappointed.

Produced by the Tri-State Model Railroaders
