Kudos to Pentrex and a job well done! I like the cameraman's ability to shoot the trains right. Some of the other videos I have seen are so unwatchable, it would make your head spin. According to the closing credits, it was shot by Mark Johnson. This is the same guy who did "The ultimate Tehachapi" " The ultimate Cajon sub" and "The ultimate Beaumont hill" all by himself! I love his framing and composition. I hope Pentrex keeps this guy around for a long time!

Additional remarks by HUGH DEFINITION:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Definitely!
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!

I have watched this video several times and each time notice something new in each scene. You absolutely cannot go wrong with this DVD! Between busy mainline railroading and small tourist operations, this video has every kind of railroading imaginable-
