Swiss Rail Journey DVD 1

"Both of the trips on this DVD were well done. The earlier VHS tapes made in the early 90's covered different areas of the Swiss rail system and were done by a UK group.
There is an incredible amount of information about the rail system and the rolling stock. The Swiss for a small country have developed an extensive rail system through some of the most beautiful scery in the world.
The high use of the rail system comes as a result of not only the topograpy of the country, but the desire of the Swiss to not create an extensive 4 lane highway system through valleys that are already congested with existing roads and the rail systems.
The pictures were shot during the springtime so that sometimes the scenery
was muted with the fog and rain. When not raining or foggy, the views are spectacular."
Absolutely gorgeous video

"Both tourists and train buffs should appreciate these two episodes; lots of scenery, lots of rolling stock. Trainspotters: keep pencil handy; many engines identified by number in Episode One. Probably late '80s. Transfer from tape satisfactory but not pristine."
Swiss trains on film

"The picture, obviously from a VHS, was a little grainy, and not really up to date close to this year. More like it was filmed in the 1980's. I would think twice before buying this."
