Wow, that is some classic stuff! Good to see some Chessie System equiptment, as I'll never be able to see CS in action. Great footage... And the music is a great addition!!!

Here's another with some good footage, thought not as much centered on the railroad, there's some good Chessie and Penn Central stuff in here. From my personal favorite John Mellencamp, it's Pink Houses:

Correct me if I'm wrong Chicago Railfans, but the shots taken while pacing the Metra train appear to be taken on the Rock Island Corridor, possibly along Rt. 30 between Ingalls Park and New Lenox. Obviously that area would have been much less developed than it is now, accounting for the lack of developments in the video.
