Join BKVP on a one week expedition that takes you to a great variety of unique and interesting operations. The trip is designed to railfan in the Pittsburgh region, but the route on the way and the way back is indirect, with various railroads being explored











Most of our objectives were successful, but a few others were met with disappointment. The majority of this trip was during some great mid-spring weather, and we covered railroading at some of the "normal" locations, but also explored and found some
nice "off the beaten path" spots!










In this program, you'll see Class I's, Regional's, Class III's, and Industrial lines. Informative narration provides the account of the trip, but also provides history and other information about the railroads and locations that are seen!







This is our first program filmed in Full 1080i Hi Definition and the picture quality is breathtaking on home entertainment system capable of playing & displaying Blu-ray discs* We have also produced this program on widescreen DVD, which is playable on all entertainment systems!

Overall, not bad. Could have used a little more railroading in the title city. I will say one thing. Railfanning is like fishing. You need a lot of patience, and the one videographer did show great patience waiting for the shot of that train on the high trestle, and it was worth it.

Additional remarks by Big Harry:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.

I grew up on the north side of Pittsburgh and because of this I had a keen interest of this Bluray's subject matter. Scene selection, subject matter, and image quality are excellent. This program is unique in the way it is presented. It is a railfans' journey from New York to Pittsburgh and return. Most of the action is in and around the Pittsburgh area, with scenes filmed along the way to and from New York, A very nice touch! However, the sound quality is, in my opinion, not up to par. Every 5-15 seconds, at random intervals, the sound cuts out for a fraction of a second. I feel that the sound quality is just as important as image quality. I played this on 3 different Blu Ray players and noticed this on each. Because of this issue with the sound, I rated this overall as 'very good'.I have close to 40 train videos in my collection, if not for the sound issue, this would be in the top 1-2 of my collection. As it is, it still ranks in my top 10.

Hello Pensfan, I'm glad you enjoyed the program and I apologize for the sound issue. This was a glitch caused by a bug in the editing software. The company has come up with a patch and it seems to have fixed the problem. Believe me, I was not happy with this after trying many different things, thinking the problem was my fault. Strangely some people have not noticed this. I have re-created both disks and will replace the ones you have. Please contact me using the contact email on the BKVP website.

I took BKVP up on their offer to replace my Blu-ray discs with ones with the sound patch fix. I must say, the updated discs sound great! This program now deserves a solid 5 stars. I would also like to thank BKVP for their outstanding customer support! Highly recommended!
