This was a good one. Dynamic, historical footage of BN in some less-frequented locations. This disc opens with a brief look at trains traversing the Skyline trestle in Mullen Pass, then moves on to a more in-depth look at the Powder River and Crawford Hill, then on to some great scenes from the Sand Point area. I was happy to see that there was adequate time devoted to Sand Point, and other parts of northern Idaho. Overall, the scenery was great, narration was satisfactory, and for the most part, videography (given its age) was good. A great variety of BN power, as well as foreign and leased units are also featured. And while, many times, giving the viewer the chance to see the whole train, or large portions thereof, this didn't always work, as some trains were traveling at very slow speeds, and it seemed to interrupt the flow of the disc. Not a big compliant, but just an observation. The dvd closes out with early-merger scenes with plenty of Santa Fe power. Overall, I'm happy with the purchase and will be viewing this one again in the future.
