It will be sure to become one of your favorites!

An interesting look from rail lines not often covered: There just doesn't seem to be a whole lot of coverage of the NYS&W and Conrail ex-Erie main, which is not all that surprising since there wasn't the traffic volume that would make productive filming of these venues possible in a short railfan visit. That's why I enjoyed this program so much, they appeared to be determined to stick it out and return often enough to amass some nice footage that makes for a thorough comprehensive look at the operations on the southern tier and old NYS&W and L&HR in the late 1980's. Narration is perfect: informative but never obtrusive. Frequent good quality maps and graphics are displayed, and the fold-out paper map included is an interesting perk. Video quality is good overall, especially since it was shot around 25 years ago. The only misses I noted was that just after the 51 minute mark, the train sounds in a few segments ( not the narration ) played only on the left channel. I tested it in another player to make sure it wasn't my TV or DVD player. Total cumulative time so affected was maybe 8 minutes. Audio in general was good, as the old SD45's and Alco Centuries really sounded great. After seeing the brief coming attractions at the close of the program for the continuation of this series, I'm very much looking forward to volumes 2 & 3.

This video is for sure one of the best ones I have in my library. It covered the line and trains in a great amount of detail. Maps are shown and the narration perfectly explains whats going on. You'll see plenty of variety from blue B&M GP40s to Suzy Q Yellowjacket SD45s. As with anything else Broken Knuckle Video has put out, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this one. Can't wait for the next volume to come out!

I know very little about the Southern Tier and of its iterations through the decades. Seeing the promotional info for this production and being familiar with this producer I took a chance and was not disappointed. Fortunately a map is included which was very helpful. It is a life and times plus a nuts and bolts type of rail fan documentary on the Southern Tier and much research was compiled for this production and it shows. It will take a couple of more viewings to piece it all together but the production was enjoyable.

A well done, comprehensive program. It was a surprise to catch a glimpse of old friend Devan Lawton on the Susie Q. My rating as to video quality doesn't reflect the fact that for the age of the original material, we must thank modern technology and the DVD format that we even have the material to view in what is mostly excellent given the source material. My only complaint is with the music between the segments, although brief, I find it annoyingly loud. Still, volumes 2 and 3 are eagerly awaited. RECOMMENDED
