Review of 50 More Cab Rides DVD

 4 of 5 (1)
"50 More Cab Rides" has been produced in response to enthusiastic response to the previous "101". While E-units, Alco Centuries, and other tried and true favorites encountered last time make an encore appearance, the goal was to include as many different types of power as possible, such as a Baldwin RS and many more.
