A bit disappointing. The scenery is fantastically beautiful. The snow scenes are unique among movies of this route I have seen. However, when I checked the box "needs more narrative" I mean a LOT more narrative. The presentation, IMO, was a bit disjointed and sometimes disorienting and without a "story line". I often couldn't tell in which direction a train was going, to Durango or to Silverton. Also a number of triple consecutive runs of the same scene, just different camera angles. Trying to show something unique for this often photographed subject is a difficult thing to do, I'm sure, but here Highball has largely succeeded, especially with the snow scenes. Still it's a "keeper" because of the scenery.
