First, let me say that I have purchased, and will continue to purchase, each release by 7Idea. I consider Aaron to be a top-notch videographer, and currently the best in his trade. This release, however, let me disappointed. Although much of the canyon scenery in the first part of the dvd was spectacular, and I'm sure that the limitations on track-side shots was because of the geography of the canyons, the numerous shots from far distances left me bored with this release. Much of the footage seemed to be shot from distances that left me wondering what the trains actually looked like. Over time, I quickly lost interest.

Agreed , many of the shots were too far away the locos way too small , its seems the dvds are focusing more on the landscape than on the locos now.
It took me two weeks to watch this dvd at 10mins a go rather than normally watching it in one go.
personally i wish id not purchased it.
I think im going to pass on the yellow head dvd.

Awesome DVD, Aaron and 7idea have done it again. Picking up where the Fraser River Canyon DVD leaves off at Lytton BC, you head north following the CN and CP Rail trains along the Thompson River to Ashcroft BC then head east towards Kamloops, along the way you'll see every kind of train the CN and CP Rail run, with a wide variety of motive power. Shot in all four season's with fantastic scenery (British Columbia after all) non stop action and 7Idea has another great DVD for your collection. A+++++ "Must Have"
