By the looks of the cover this looked like an awesome DVD to have, but it was hard for me to get into this DVD, all the photography was transferred from supper 8 film there was a lot of noise in the quality of the photography most trains are cut off right after the power goes by in some cases before all the power got by, i don't remember seeing much in the way of caboose shots ether, camera work is rough with some shots having to much shacking. If your a die hard Santa Fe fan and the lack of quality in the filming doesn't bother you then you might like it but for me I'd save my money for something done on the Santa Fe from Green Frog, Pentrex or one of the other DVD producers who can clean up that super 8 film and make it look like it was shot yesterday.

Excellent video, the only thing that limits this video is the lack of full train shots. There is a lot of information you can get to help you model your trains prototypically. It is definitely a well watched video, Thank You!
