Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

We are continuing our Central Vermont in Steam series. Here is all new, all color film taken in the early fifties. Actually, this is a two tape set. The main tape, CV-3, covers CV steam in Willimantic as a southbound local enters the yard, does some switching, then heads south, through South Windham, Lebanon and Norwich. We catch a train in Montville, where a double-header does some switching. Moving north, we sample the action in Monson and Palmer, then on the West Hartford Bridge and at White River Junction. We explore the CV's main facilities in St. Albans, then take a ride in the caboose of the Richford Branch local. This is a classic study of old time railroading and some of the procedures are amazing! CV-4 is an 11 minute bonus tape that covers a cab ride from East New London to Mansfield, CT- in a Canadian National EMD covered wagon! These tapes are a "must-have"!

The DVD was very enjoyable for train buffs like me and my husband. The single problem that I found was that the last segment only had a small part of the CV line excursion. One of the reasons we purchased it was to have a virtual travel experience along the entire route. Other than this issue-if you own the first part of the set-this conclusion is a must.
