Ok. while this program was filmed on one day during January 1989, there are lots of changes compare to today's railroading. It has something to do with the electric wires not installed, no silver line bus stop building, and a limited amount of stations.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: There was no narration.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
