Another winner from 7idea Productions! The first 30 mins cover the areas leaving Las Vegas, and weren't of particular interest to me (not saying it's bad; I prefer scenic footage). But once the filming began at the entrance to Rainbow Canyon, that's where it's worth the price of admission! Incredible colors of the canyon walls, lengthy trains, and fantastic videography, make this a must-have disc. To compliment the filming, the use of drone-shot footage really highlights the areas, and is particularly well-done. A 12,000 ft. stack train is panned from high above for several minutes, while it traverses the amazingly colorful canyon. This segment was absolutely my favorite. Without a doubt, this dvd reinforces my belief that 7idea is the leader in filming of contemporary western US railroading. This release is strongly recommended.
