Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

This program features some great action, conjuring images of past railfan experiences. The decade of the '80's was period of great change to the New England rail scene. The Boston & Maine morphed into Guilford, the Providence and Worcester was becoming a regional giant and cabooses were disappearing. ALCO's were still active on several lines. Featured are the B&M, P&W, CV, Green Mountain, Maine Central, Conrail and many growing tourist operations.

This video has a a great variety of footage. You'll see everything from Conrail GEs to the small geared steamers climbing Mount Washington. If your have an interest in railroading in New England, you'll not want to miss out on this one. Like everything else Broken Knuckle Video has put out, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND it.

New England railroading is an area that is kind of "out of the way". Thanks to is location with an ocean on one side, and a different country (Canada, consisting of the provinces of Quebec and New Bruinswick) on 2 sides. There is not a lot of mainline action to be found. The railroads in this video are shortlines, and regionals. I found that aspect to be interesting. There is quite a variety of trains and headend power, paint schemes, and consists. General manifests are the main trains, but also some piggy backs, and some tourist excursion trains make up the video. Various seasons of the year are also seen. The scenery of the region is interesting with rolling landscape, much which is treed. This is not mountain railroading, and not flatland either. Quaint little towns make up the general population along with some interesting old structures close to the railroad. From these observations, the video is good and deserves a good rating and recommendation. "However": I found the quality of the video to be poor to fair. The colour appears to be off and varying at times; there is to much light at times, and not enough at other times. Night scenes appear to be with a time lapse camera as the lights of the trains drag a bit. There is some narration, but not near enough, and little to no screen graphics leaving the viewer lost at times. I was not impressed with the video quality overall. While I would recommend this video, it is with a yellow caution. I believe a rating of 3/5 is being generous.
