I echo the laudatory comments of the other reviewers. I watched this in Blue Ray. I'm not high on this producer's products but I must doff my cap to him on this one. While, obviously, I have not seen all DVDs/Blue Rays about the D&S, I have seen many and this is, by far, the best of the bunch. Most show scenic highlights, especially the well known photo of the train hugging the mountain on a very narrow ledge, but this one shows it all, start to finish. Lots of beautiful scenery, less spectacular but beautiful, nevertheless, which I didn't know existed, though I suspected, as it was in the Rockies. I'm glad I bought it.

This production goes beyond the rating of excellent.

I found the DVD version on Amazon and ordered it.

After receiving and viewing it, I noticed that it was available in Blu-ray from Train Video Depot.

I therefore ordered the Blu-ray version.

This production is a potential treasure to anyone who has traveled via the Durango-Silverton railroad. The quality of the production far exceeds what can be taken as a passenger on the train.

If you enjoyed the train trip to Silverton, you will be delighted with this video.

I have the green frog blue ray and it is very good, but this is the best of any silverton dvd. The video is done very artistically which includes the beautiful scenery along with the trains done so well that it has you watching again.

I have many rail fan DVDs.
This is by far my best one.
The music and video make it fun for non rail fans.

I love the narrow gauge subject and wide screen viewing, but alas the camera shake in this DVD lets it down enormously. Hand holding a wide vision camera allows all the movement to be amplified and so does this DVD no favors. The parts where the camera is not hand held are great, but are let down by the other sections. The topic is a welcome one, the ideas in the DVD are great, and yes it is informative to a non local citizen. I thought it would be better than this in quality, given the brand name.

A brilliant film that brought back many very happy memories of what is to me the best privately owned steam railway in the world.

I have only one complaint. They didn't show enough of the arrival in Silverton when the train draws up basically a street with shops on either side! To an Englishman that is extraordinary as it would never be allowed to happen in the UK. All our railways are fenced off with very high fences and we have separate stations.

A minor point because overall the experience live and watching the DVD in Bluray is fantastic.

Many thanks and please bring us some more of other steam railways.
