Review of Amtrak 40 1971-2011 A Four Decade Retrospective DVD

This marks our third program in the AMTRAK Series: AMTRAK 20 covered the first twenty years; AMTRAK 30 focused on changes during 1991-2001. AMTRAK 40 brings us up to 2011, but with a look back over the entire forty year period.

A few features: Locomotives and Rolling Stock including "retirement" careers for many. Mail & Express: an up and down story. Cab Rides: AEM7 at night, "Downeaster", "Cardinal" and others. Are We ON TIME?: Causes of Train Delays. Gallery of Trains: 1971 to 2011. National Train Day: from 2008 to 2011. ... and many more aspects to the intercity passenger rail story. Sit back and enjoy the four decade ride, then let's get traveling - for the Journey Continues !!!

[TVD NOTE:] This producer uses Ligtescribe type DVDs and some titles include literature that may rub against the disc surface in transit to us causing fine scratches. This will not affect DVD play in any way. We ship with a piece of foam to protect the DVD disc.
