Since 2013, I have had the pleasure of knowing Chris Wehman. An Ohio native, Wehman has been shooting trains on video for years. He has produced countless railroad videos from locations all over the country. Over the last two months, Wehman and I have been working on a little YouTube Series, narrated and produced by Wehman, showcasing some of his work. The series will be called “CW Rails” and will be marked as so, with the episode number in the title.
You can watch the first episode of the series below:
In the first episode of Chris Wehman’s Rails Series, you’ll spend time on BNSF Railway’s Racetrack in Chicagoland. With Metra commuter trains, manifests, and intermodal freight trains, this nearly hour long video showcases some of BNSF’s best action for train watching in the Chicagoland region. All scenes in this video were filmed in Downers Grove and Hinsdale, Illinois.
