ITEM NOTES REGARDING THIS PRODUCER
  • Some of the multiple disc set titles from this producer come in "stacked" cases. That is the discs are stacked on top of each other in a special case.

(Revere MA US) on .

  •  4 of 5


This boxset contains a somewhat 2 4 dvd sets merged into 8. The first 4 is the Noteworthy Railway Productions programs with Lane Venardos narrating, while the last 4 contains 4 out of 5 videos from the Wide World of Steam Series. There is also a goof in the boxset. US Army 610 appears on the front cover, but it is never seen in any of these 8 programs.

Additional remarks by Steamboy:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Yes.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Definitely.
