As an average railfan in america myself, this is really great despite the different cameras throughout the years as well as some locomotives which we never saw in any other railfan video. EX: Reader Railroad 2-6-2 #11. The only Railroad Video Producer who had the most footage of the little engine? Greg Scholl Himself.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
