Tie & Surfacing Super Gang 2 Disc Set DVD

A good video but with absolutely no narrative. It would have been nice to know just what was happening, and especially why it was happening . (I am more interested in the hows and whys of railroading vs watching trains and noting locomotive nomenclature.) Compared to Pentrex' "Workin' On the Railroad", with lots of explanatory narrative, this viseo leaves something to be desired, although, being in Blue Ray, the picture quality is inherently better than Pentrex' DVD, as can be expected. The second disc of this two disc set is a little more understandable, maybe because I'd already watched the first disc, I don't know. This video did give a lot of free publicity to the Caravan Coffee shop in Belmont, NC near the intersection of South Main Street and (Avenue 2?) where the work was being performed. :>)

Re my above review, I neglected to mention that in the absence of narrative these videos did have captions. They were pretty much limited to identifying locations and the various machines used, which usually though not always, pretty much described their function. Still more information would have been helpful.
