Durango, Colorado was buried under 36 inches of snow following several storms that had passed through the San Juan Mountains, the week of January 17, 2010. The railroad was snowed in. Cuts north
of Rockwood were filled with snow, and a number of snow slides had run between Rockwood and Cascade Canyon. Machines of Iron was there to show you how the flanger train and the maintenance of way crews and their equipment handled the snow.

Very good. Interesting. Narration was very informative as to what they were doing and how and why. Only thing wrong, and very minor at that, was the narrator kept referring to a spreader as a flanger.

Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Good Value
Recommend to others? Yes.

The railroad in the video refers to it as a flanger it is not a spreader.

Yes, I noticed that when I watched this video again a week or so ago. Just missed it the first time, I guess.

Very well done. Most of the video is shot from the car right beind the spreader so you can watch the plowing of the snow. or from the front of the plow.

If I needed a reminder why I moved south 30+ years ago, this program did it. I rated the disc as slightly overpriced as it is a DVD-R. That said, the unique subject matter makes it worth having. The power plant footage was quite interesting and I wish there had been more. Definitely something different!

Additional remarks by TRAINMASTER:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
