Review of BC Rail Starlight to Buddwiser DVD

To British Columbia Railway has fallen the distinction of operating North America's most diverse passenger services, school kids at Seton Portage ride the unique school train (dubbed "Buddwiser" by students) to Lillooet. By contrast, the elegant "Pacific Starlight Dinner Train" offers Vancouverites sumptuous fare. A twilight ride along Howe Sound, and glorious big-band era music. Then there are the "Royal Hudson" and year-round "Caribou Prospector". All of these are seen, plus a steam special to Kelly Lake behind C.P. 2-8 0 3716. Winter views, plus scenes from 1969 (P.G.E.) and 1983, help fill out this study of a truly progressive railway.
