Amtraks California Zephyr Cab Ride Part 2 Norden to Colfax Donner DVD

This is part two of the ride in the cab of the California Zephyr from Norden to Colfax. As with part one Mr. Berko does not let you down at all. The camera work is excellent and the scenery of the high Sierras is breathtaking. Also interesting is the comments from the crew running the locomotive. Sometimes you get the feeling that Mr. Berko owns the locomotive and the crew is just along for the ride. In a few places, he shows the engineer hard at work. I also got a kick out of a radio message just before the CZ gets into Colfax about having "food for Walt, and to meet on the ground after the train arrives." it is things like this plus all of the afore mentioned scenes and shots that makes this video set a great purchase.
