This 2012 DVD features some big mainline action with these incredible giants. The major difference on this has something to do with 4449 & 765 almost 10 years ago. The ï¿½09 footages on the 2 engines were shown in the Topics Entertainment Exclusive Blu-ray: Steam Giants on the HD trains 4 DVD set that were narrated by Lane Venardos. Unfortunately when Lane ended his life for unknown reasons in 2011 after Winter in the Blue Mountains was released, Les Jarrett Himself re-narrated the script for the 4449 and the 765 segments in this now 5 year old DVD. Kinda like the different narrators in the first 16 seasons of Thomas the Tank Engineï¿½s TV series. Who knows whatï¿½s going to Happen when Les is making a Big Steam 2 Sequel with Gulf Mobile & Northern 425 & Jersey Central 113 in Pennsylvania, Unused Strasburg railroad freight specials, and the 10 month old Peter Lerro Productions Photo Charter on the Grand Canyon Railway?
Additional remarks by Steamboy: Narration:Could have used more. Narration CAN be turned off in special features. Would kids enjoy this?Maybe. Image quality:Excellent! DVD Value::Fair. Recommend to others?Yes.
