Western Rails includes a great variety of places and railroads. You will see Kansas City Southern on the Mississippi River Bridge at Burlington, Iowa then head west through Kansas. In Kansas we see action around Abilene, and then along the Santa Fe line with now removed semaphore signals at Syracuse, with Amtrak. Then continue to La Junta, and Lamy, New Mexico for western flavor before heading to Colorado where we see action on Tennessee Pass(line closed in 1997), and other shots in the region with UP. Next its a few scenes in Utah, including a train near Moab, and a desert meet with Amtrak and a D&RGW led train.
Next we head to Sheridan, Wyoming to see a trio of BN trains departing, and then head to the scenic Columbia River Gorge between Washington and Oregon to see BN and UP action. Finally we head to California with a sampling of action along the Coast Line with SP trains, and then the Tehachapi line with scenes at Caliente, Bealville, and the famous Loop with SP and Santa Fe action.

ok while the main dvd program is 100% diesels, the bonus features are 75% steam shots. one segement focused on challenger 3985 & ATSF 3751 on display during the 1992 topeka railroad days weekend, and the 2nd segment features the cumbres & toltec scenic railroad 1993 snowbattle, from the 2 hour discontinued tape: "Tripleheader Rotary".
Additional remarks by Steamboy: Narration:Just enough. Would kids enjoy this?Maybe. Image quality:Excellent! DVD Value:Seemed a little high, but not too bad. Recommend to others?Definitely.
