There's quite a variety of railroad river crossings in the Midwest. We begin with several crossings of the mighty Mississippi at St. Louis, Ft. Madison, Clinton and Hastings. Other river crossings include St. Croix River, Rock River, Spoon River, the Des Plaines River and Colorado River. And it is not just rivers, as we cross creeks and canals too.

Over 50 trains are shown, from Union Pacific, CNW, Santa Fe, Burlington Northern, Canadian National, CP Rail, Soo Line, SP and Burlington Northern. See all kinds of bridges!

This one is definitely NOT a keeper. A couple of swing bridges and one lift bridge but no draw bridges with vast majority of the bridges of the common types found on all RRs anywhere in the country. Almost all shot in the midwest, primarily in Illinois. The squib with this production touts a crossing of the Colorado River. That bridge crosses that river near its headwaters NE of Glenwood Springs, CO where the river is maybe 30' wide. I was expecting considerably more, though maybe too much.

The video is old (original copyright is dated 1996) and the sound is very poor. In most places the narrator can barely be understood and in others can't be understood at all.

Additional remarks by Rail Buff:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Poor.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Definitely not!.
