Review of Light Rail Panorama - DVD Transit Gloria Mundi

Light Rail Panorama is an in-depth look at the new light rail systems in Calgary, Portland, and Sacramento. It follows each line in each system end-to-end showing samples of every type of right-of-way encountered, and all other major points of interest.

Comparisons between light rail and rapid transit or metro are shown, as well as between different light rail systems. The narration is comprehensive and technically oriented (although an engineering degree is definitely not necessary for understanding). It will appeal to any railfan with an interest in new light rail systems, and as valuable background for light rail advocates. All color, full soundtrack.
