Kansas City is home to some of the most intense railroading anywhere, with upwards of 400 trains a day passing through. We take a look at the old industrial area of The Bottoms, with trains from BNSF, UP, NS & KCT, and spend time at BN Crossing, with trains on three levels and continuous action through the day. Awesome! No narration.

Non-stop train watching. Had no idea KC was such a hotspot for train action. Will have to make a trip there just to photograph slow moving trains. Loved it.

Trains, trains, lots of nonstop trains. From the action in this program, it appears Kansas City is a great place for train fans. In fact, there's so much action (up to 4 or even 5 trains visible at a time) that Highball did away with narration for this program. That's a good thing if you like pure railroad sounds and action, but I would like to have known where all that spaghetti of tracks was coming from and going to, likewise the trains. It wouldn't have taken much to provide that info (or maybe a map). Aside from that, it is well photographed, as usual with Highball. It's a long video (so you get a lot for your money), shot in 2 locations (I liked the 3-level BN Crossing the better of the two), and the video quality of the BluRay version is truly compelling. One note - this is an industrial area, so all the trains move slowly (some very slowly) -- don't expect any dramatic scenes of locomotives flying by.

If you like railroad action from multiple railroads this is a good choice!!! Lots of action from Union Pacific and BNSF with shortline action also!!!Good shots of grain and coal as well as mixed freight action!! Good stuff!!!! Modern power with older power mixed in!!! Razor sharp video , blue ray is a must when it comes to train videos!!!

Great video. Have been to Kansas City several times and never visited either of the locations presented here. Video inspired a trip back to the midwest.

The number of trains is unbelievable! I was hoping for more KCS locos but mainly saw UP and BNSF. Narration would have been nice.
