Excellent DVD well photographed from star to finish, narration is informative and keeps the show interesting. Plets has had this available for some time but I just recently got around to getting a copy of of it. I have family in Fort Doge IA and this DVD brought back a lot of memoirs railfanning the CC&P from Fort Dodge to Iowa Falls and Waterloo in the late 1980s and early 1990s. While other Railroads are pulling unit coal trains , intermodial trains and manifest freights with the latest power the CC&P pulls these trains with lash ups of eight to ten Paducah GP's , GP18s and GP38s. Awesome to watch these colorful lash ups and fantastic to hear those good old first generation EMD engines again, just the way I remember it. You wont regret getting a copy of this DVD. A++++
