"Steam Train Legacy Two is another 3 DVD set from Marathon Music and Video featuring old short subjects on railroads. While the films were interesting, at least half of the films lacked narration, or even sound for that matter. While I understand that many of these films were silent to begin with, the producers could have at least put some canned train sound on there instead of that repetitive blugrass music! While there are a few bright spots (in paticular Southern Pacific's feature-length "This is My Railroad"), all things considered I recommend the original over this boring collection."
