Review of The Rio Grande Narrow Gauge Then & Now 2 Disc DVD

The Rio Grande Narrow Gauge is the stuff of legend., and in this two-disc program, we see these lines from black & white footage in the fourties and fifties, color films from the sixties, and video shot from 1992 through the first two decades of the 21st century.

Finally we visit today's Cumbres & Toltec Scenic and Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge railroads, where we see an example of all four classes of Mikado in operation.
