Review of To the Northern Lights Churchill Manitoba VIA Rail DVD

Come to the GREAT CANADIAN NORTH:
Polar Bears, Tundra, Beluga Whales, The Aurora. The Hudson Bay Line, completed in 1929, remains an important link in the absence of highways. In 1994, passenger trains still rolled between Winnipeg and Churchill, complete with Venerable FP-9s, steam generators, a diner lounge, and sleeper, plus piggyback cars north of Thompson. A Blizzard greets the arriving Hudson Bay!

White whales frolic in the Churchill River, Bears wandering on the rocky shores and other sites in the Region. Then ride the rails back south, including views from the
engine. YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS WILL WANT TO TAKE THIS JOURNEY AGAIN & AGAIN!

65 Minutes. FP-9s, steam heat, piggybacks on passenger trains! Take the Winnipeg to Churchill ride, see LOTS of blowing snow, bears, whales, the Aurora, etc.

[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
