A trip back in time to witness everyday work on these railroads are very decent to see, as well as a variety of Steam power such as future famous northern 844 for example, which they have since been retired, displayed, sold to museums, and sadly gone for scrap. Not to mention being merged. Overall, good compilation, decent trains, and fine music as these films will take you back way before the internet, social media, and also online shopping.
