Pentrex visited the "Big Sky" country of Montana in 1990 to witness the operations of one of the county"s newest regional railroads, the Montana Rail Link. The rugged landscapes of western Montana"s Rocky Mountains presented a challenge to early railroad builders and you"ll witness that continuing struggle as MRL operates high tonnage trains across the daunting grades of both Mullan and Bozeman Passes.

Great selection of Montana's excellent scenic beauty. Slightly dated yet shows the initiative of Montana Rail Link's earlier stages of growth. Highly captivating. Good intermix with BN traffic. Many elevated bridges and water ways make this DVD appear like it's filmed in a national park. The upper and lower horse shoes are a rare back to back treat requiring constant attention from the engineers. This DVD still remains in Pentrex's top 10.

The Montana Rail Link is another great production from Pentrex. This was made in 1990 about three years when the railroad first came out the highlights include riding in the cab of steep grades to Mullan Pass. The Montana scenery goes great in this video and a few appearances of Burlington Northern power and a few rolling stock of railroads that no longer operate. The Montana Rail Link is a fantastic video from Pentrex you won't want to miss.

This is the sort of quality you expect from Pentrex. Could've been a little longer in duration.

An excellent DVD, one of Pentrex's best. The photography is first rate, making good use of the superb scenery and with some interesting cab shots. The editing is also "gentle" enabling the trains to be seen properly, better than much Pentrex work. There is also helpful information, with good maps, plenty of commentary and interesting asides, for example on dispatching. Well worth the money

Regional Railroads don't appear to be of great interest to a lot of Railfans. Mainly becuase the fact they are smaller in size than the Class 1's, on former Class 1 lines.
