A great video of a unique operation. Well filmed and narrated. This isn't videography, it's cinematography. One of my favorite videos!

Interesting content video however the Blu-ray image quality was not up to the standards of some others. In many instances it looked like DVD quality. I viewed it on a 70 inch HD and it was very obvious.

I've heard of the Northshore Mining RR but when visiting the general area I couldn't explore it due to limited time and a main focus of the remaining DM&IR and the Erie Mining RR operations. It always intrigued me; the existence of a double track heavy RR that was so isolated and more or less "below the radar". Based on the previews and reviews, I bought this video.

Are you tired of endless BNSF & UP intermodal trains? Are you an EMD fan? Do you like SD40's in full dynamic w/ 17,000 tons of ore behind them or in Run8 slogging up a grade? Then this program is for you. I really liked the uniqueness of this "little" RR. Thoroughly researched & wonderful narrated. Also included is a look at the processing plant & ore dock. This quickly went out of stock, so I had to wait for a bit. Well worth the wait.

Very interesting program. Features Mostly SD40's with a SD28-3 and a section showing SD18 1231 on the point of a empty train. Beautiful scenery, with lots of snow and some fall colors. Also, very informative on their operations. Very worthwhile production.
