This is a great DVD in my opinion. There are a few issues with the picture quality on some of the footage but, I think that's due to the age of the films being from the 60's & 70's when image technology wasn't what it is today? I found the entire DVD to be very informative however, I'm not sure children would enjoy this film as it's somewhat technical in some areas where the footage is pretty much training films for RR employees. There is definitely "More bang for the buck" with this DVD as it covers almost 3 solid hours of footage with some great old RR's who have become fallen flags, as well as some newer footage. All in all, it's a great DVD and I think most railfans would want to include this collection in their railroad library.

There is a little bit of everything in this video. Most of all, it is historical, and many of the principals from when this was filmed have not changed much today. There is a lot of educational material in this video of general interest to the rail fan. Most of the featured railroads are Fallen Flags which adds to the history of it. Basically, 8 short films, on one disc, in less than 3 hours, with lots of entertainment. I think most viewers will really enjoy this collection of videos that are not common to the general market. The best part is the price. You can't go wrong for a video of this length for the value of it.... Enjoy.
