If you are a fan of the Kansas City Southern, I really think you will like this DVD. Plets Express follows the KCS on their line from Kansas City through Rich Mountain into Arkansas. You see a large variety of motive power and paint schemes; even some shortline action shows up. You do see some trains over and over again but remember that KCS doesn't run 80 trains a day on this line. The camera work is solid and narration is informative. I think you will find this to be a top notch DVD on the KCS.
