I bought this video thinking I would get a great program about this high speed train. Instead I got a program which does explain the trains features but I thought it could have been better. I was hoping for alot of trackside scenes but only saw a brief smattering of action. I hope someone makes a dedicated video of this train with lots of trackside scenes and a complete cab ride from DC to Boston. For such a dynamic train, there is very little video coverage of the train.

Additional remarks by rrvideojunkie:
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.
