Chicago's busy Blue Island crossing sees trains from CSX, UP, BNSF, CP, CN, IHB and Iowa Interstate, with Metra crossing overhead in the background. The last manually operated crossing tower in the USA was in operation during our visit, but was recently (June 2013) closed and demolished.

Blue Island is one of Chicago's busiest railroad locations. Most of the railroad companies pass through Blue Island. Unfortunately, this video does not do the location any justice. There is so much to see and be seen, yet the actual time not counting the bonus footage in the video was less than an hour. I expected better from this producer.

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
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.

TrainVideoDepot provided an excellent delivery service and I am pleased that I bought the dvd. I would have welcomed more commentary and less of intrusive road crossing warning bell.

Unfortunately, the crossing warning bells are a constant with Highball. They can't seem to get away from them.
