If you are a fan of switching roads, belt lines, and terminal pikes as I am, this DVD of the Belt Railway of Chicago's motive power may be to your liking. Be aware that this is 1997 BRC, and it's all about their locomotives at that time rather than train run-bys. Each type of unit on their roster is shown and described, sometimes from the inside of the cab. This 79-minute DVD is a good one for the subject matter, but is not as sharp and properly exposed as I would like it.

Additional remarks by Great Lakes Railroader:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
