Review of Southern Pacific East 1997 DVD

It's post-merger, but Southern Pacific and Cotton Belt paint still dominates. See over 50 trains in Indiana and Illinois. We'll be on the SPCSL (SP Chicago St. Louis) route and on EJ&E, Belt Railway of Chicago and GTW tracks.

Locations include Wilmington, Dwight, Odell, Pontiac, Chenoa, Bloomington, Lincoln, Napierville, Eola, Bedford Park, Chicago, and Griffith. Lots of pre-merger paint, but we also see some merger consists with Union Pacific joining the Siouthern Pacific family of paint schemes.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.
