If you like MoPac and Frisco this DVD is a must have. The image quality is a little rough but the original sound makes up for it. The was the first time I've gotten to see Frisco freight on film, it's pretty awesome. They spent some time watching the Alton Southern switch and you get to see a few Amtrak trains along with some ICG and SOU freights.
