This is more like an informational DVD than the usual train DVD. Don't get me wrong, there are plenty of trains of all kinds in it. I knew Chicago was a busy RR center, but this disc really brought home just how busy. There are freights, AMTRAK, metro, or Metra in Chicago, even the famous Els. Tracks running every direction, under, over, around, like spaghetti. Awesome. I'm glad I bought it and I think any train enthusiast would enjoy it.

Chicago. It was at one time, America's capital city of railroading, but in recent years, it is now one of the capital cities of never ending mass shootings, MS-13 gangs and gun violence, along With Baltimore, Detroit, Denver, San Francisco, Birmingham, New York City, Springfield Mass, and Atlanta. Overall back to trains however, it is an amazing hot spot somewhat, as well as a great variety of Steam and Diesel action, plus some elevated subways are also included. When are we going to make chicago crime free again? When will the happy times return? Will I along with the rest of the innocent railfans be next on the must shot to death list by Mass Shootings & MS-13 Gangs?
