Hot Spots 25 Marion Ohio - CSX and Norfolk Southern across eight diamonds DVD 3.8 of 5 (4)
Marion, Ohio is the crossing of three main lines at grade. CSX on the east-west former NYC Big 4/Erie Lackawanna line, crossed by the north-south former Pennsy, no NS Sandusky line, and the former C&O, now CSX Columbus to Toledo line. Marion Union Depot is at the junction of the three lines, and is still a great place to watch trains.

Hot Spots are often very good locations for train watching, and Marion Ohio fits that category. No arguments there. However, in this video, I feel that while there is plenty of train action, I questioned if the producers could have done better. Narration needs a lot of work. There is very little narration, and this video needs some as it lacks screen graphics also. It is your basic "trains rolling by type video with no information video". Because it is directly at diamonds, the trains are also slow moving. Location of where the video is shot from changes little.

The price for a blueray is very good. Any train viewing is worth watching. Even if the shots were dull the picture and it is trains. Loved it.

Picture quality is excellent, but I wish there was more narration and different shooting locations near the topic town.
