"Autumn in the Great Gorge-NKP 4" is an excellent DVD. Alot of interesting historial railroading information is presented about railroading through the
Great Gorge of the New River in West Virginia. Part one of the video takes
NKP Berkshire #765 on a run from Huntingdon to Sulfur Springs. Part 2 of the
video take NKP Berksire #765 on a "Fall Foliage" tour from Huntington to Hinton,
W.Va. The foliage scenery is beautiful and to watch NKP Berksire #765 strut-it's-stuff is awesome. Truly a magnificent locomotive!!
The video was filmed sometime around 1986 and the only comment I could make to
improve this DVD would be to do the same trip with NKP 765 and film it with a
digital video camera. A modern digital recording would knock this DVD out of the park!
