This program features Amtrak and Metra action at Union Station in Chicago, IL from the Roosevelt Rd. overpass. Although this program looks impressive with the many trains that go into and out of the station, there were several things I found absolutely disappointing. The lack of time stamps for each train that goes by as well as no on-screen graphics makes identifying the trains almost impossible, if not difficult, particularly the many Amtrak trains as well as Metra trains that radiate from the station. Furthermore, as with most of the Hot Spots series, there is extremely informative but very little narration in the beginning 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? Maybe.
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.
