Sad to see the beast in action for the last time

I could sit for hours on end !! Alcos are the best locomotive around ! Its too bad that all the alcos are gone into history but the dvds bring back the sounds of alcos back to life .Would be neat to see more CN alco power on the dvd s as well !! Maybe a dvd devoted to CN alco s But over all the different areas where tracks don't run on the dvds were great !! Keep up the great work I"m sure happy with the alco dvd !!

I enjoy alsos, and was looking for a video or 2 that did a great job showing them. David's review convinced me to look at these 2 videos, and I want to say Thanks. Well worth the purchase.

What was it like on the Quebec Central Railway line? This is one of the rare videos (it is the only one I know) that shows this Railway. My favorite part is the extremely rare, also the longest footage (about 10+ min) I have seen of CP MLW RS-18 HIGH HOOD, which is not mentioned on the dvd's decription.This part was in vol 1.

Excellent. I have never been to this area, but I thought the choice of locations was well thought out. And the fact that the videos were done in the mid 80's, they were of good quality.

A very well done set, with images that can't be repeated. Of particular enjoyment, at least for me, is the cab rides. The extended cab ride in volume 2 is priceless. Unfortunately the commentary by those involved with the operation and care of the Alcos are contained in the accompanying booklet and are not on the dvd's. Interesting, but short commentary. If you like Alcos, you will want this set.
