This video's place on the shelf is defined by the large quantity, variety, and screen time of narration and interviews of former employees and patrons, with all the markings of a television special, unlike full-on documentaries. This apparently irks some fans as an out-of-balance ratio with historic footage, however there is material here, both narrative and visual, that does not appear in other similar titles, making it a useful addition to a complete collection on this topic.

An excellent documentary with interviews with rail historians and passengers and employees.
