While this 2006 program was the second TSG multimedia dvd ever made, my version/copy is the 2007/2008 reprint because of the SP 2472 in Niles canyon trailer and the steam fest 2007 trailer. While the case says itï¿½s only 110 minutes, the main program is only 96 minutes, the Niles canyon railway segment is only 2 and a half minutes short, and the Aces to the Aï¿½s baseball special is only 12 minutes long. Overall if you love present 21st century diesels, this is a great program to enjoy again and again
Additional remarks by Steamboy: Narration:Just enough. Would kids enjoy this?Definitely! Image quality:Excellent! DVD Value:Excellent Value! Recommend to others?Yes.
