I was very excited when I saw this release, along with the other Trains magazine "Hot Spots" dvd's. On the cover these are touted as being "an encore showing" of their "On Location" VHS releases from the the 1990's, along with an update to 2017. I had purchased about all of these older VHS tapes, I enjoyed them greatly. Trains magazine had an excellent opportunity to show a modern-day, updated version of these earlier releases, but unfortunately chose to limit their "update" to only the last 15 minutes of the dvd. I was hoping to see a "condensed" version of the older footage, and more current footage, but that was not the case. While it's nice to have a dvd-version of the VHS tape, it's hardly worth the price.
Additional remarks by Curt:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
