This program features trains on 3 different mainlines through Centralia: the Southern (now NS) between Louisville and St. Louis, the CB&Q (later BN and now BNSF) Beardstown Sub from Galesburg , IL to Paducah, KY and the Illinois Central (now CN) mainline from Chicago, IL to New Orleans, LA. Unlike the earlier Hot Spots series, there are no time stamps for each train that goes through as the previous Hot Spot, Willard, was the last program in the series to use this model. Amtrak's "Illini" makes 2 appearances. Other than that, there is only introductory narration and then the trains do the talking for the rest of the program.

Additional remarks by Nikhil Murthy:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

An action packed program, showing many BNSF coal trains, NS various movements and CN GE Widecabs, SD40's along with IC SD70'S. A few Amtrak trains also show up. Never a dull moment. Most trains are moving at very low speeds. Great shots of SD70mac's. A few Union Pacific trains also show up. You will enjoy, if this is your interest.

Narration: Just enough.
