This is a good regional look at the Chicago & Northwestern. The camera work and picture quality is great considering most of the footage was shot over 20 years ago. The narration is very informative but there were a few times it cut over the locomotive sounds. The DVD came with a pamphlet that contained a CNW locomotive roster and Wisconsin map. The cameras also caught the Green Bay & Western, Wisconsin Central, and a Milwaukee Road steam engine. If you like the CNW, I think you will love this DVD.

Narration: A little bit too much.
