I saw a clip of this DVD on Youtube when I was searching for Climax geared loco shots. Although we live most of the year in the UK, we are very familiar with the railroads of the Pacific Northwest, a location we visit at least once a year, and the movie is an inspired re-visit to a much-loved line, the Mount Rainier Scenic Railroad. This time, instead of the trains being loaded down with car-loads of happy railfans, it's loaded down with car-loads of rip-rap. All in a good and worthwhile cause, that of rebuilding the foundations of the new bridge over the river crossed by the line.

This is a first class production that demonstrates the dedication of the crews and maintenance staff. Running a Railroad is hard graft involving long hours and "running repairs" to complete a contract. This is captured on this DVD to a very high standard.

Good follow up to "Day in the woods" Rock train is a bit short on story but has lots of action. Commentary probably better turned off after you've heard it once.

An EXCELLENT buy. If you even like trains casually, this is a must have! Narration is excellent, and the content exceeds most railroad DVD's. The cab footage is amazing. I have a very large collection of railroad videos & DVD's, but I come back to this DVD, and Golden Rail Video, for more.

The video gave an excellent review of the story behind the story of the reason behind the Rock Train. In this way, the viewer was well informed of the reason for this special and unique operation. The filming was very well done- even if the viewer did not always know what the narrator was referring to in the way of equipment and operation of the railroad. I also liked the way the viewer got to know the engineers and firemen of the train by listening to them describe the problem solving of the railroad. It is a real working man's video.
