Great DVD for GT fans. Narration is good. Lots of EMD 4 axle power is featured, especially GP38-2s and chopped nose GP9-Rs. l was hoping for better picture quality, but it's not bad. Just about every RR DVD I've seen hass lesser quality than Hollywood movies made in the same era. There's no root or title menu. When l put it in the player it starts playing. Fortunately it is broken up into chapters.
Additional remarks by Bill S: Narration:Just enough. Would kids enjoy this?Maybe. Image quality:A little rough around the edges. DVD Value:Excellent Value! Recommend to others?A "Must Have"!
