Geared Shay locomotives at Cass, West Virginia, with a Carl Franz photo freight, and the following weekend at the Cass Railfan weekend. We see all four operating Shays in action, with the signature triple header and side by side run-by's, with lots of close ups of the thrashing machinary. Lots of sound, fury and smoke and not much motion! Totally amazing!

Like all of the other shows, the quality of the footage is awesome, the narration is minimal as always, and the shays however are 100% interesting to look at, when you're on vacation in the mountains.

Started out very interesting but then became boring. Nothing but many, and I mean MANY, run-bys of the same four Shays hauling three or four cars each (reminded me of a child's toy train set) with almost non-stop whistling which became very tedious. Of course this was a Railfan weekend so I should have been warned and more alert. Also LOTS of smoke, which I don't like. Probably more smoke in a day from each loco than each would produce in a month of actual service. I know they do it for the fans but I still don't like it. I do like the narrator's (Peter Cook?) voice and presentation, though I could have used more.

Peter Cook's narrative skills keep improving, his video skills are already top notch. Rock solid images, crystal clear audio are evident in the release. While I would have liked a little more narration, what is provided is adequate and informative. I would liked to have seen more of the shops and the activity there. Cass put on a class act and Highball certainly captured it. If U like steam and geared locomotives U can't miss with this one. Given the length of the program it's well worth the $
