Montana Rail Link - Pentrex
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.

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.
With Montana Rail Link, think again. I purcashed my copy in early 2001 and have lost count at the number of times it's been viewed. Covered from east to west, if you love rolling scenery, it builds as the movie goes along.
Like all Pentrex, if ordering to a Canadian address ---
Do not purchase direct from Pentrex. Shipping rates are ridiculas to Canada. But don't judge the movie based on that. It's worth purchasing through a dealer like Train Video Depot and will be a asset to anyone's collection.
