Movie Reviews

Excellent travel feature, Doug Jones does it again!
Tom Balfe ( | State College, PA | 10/11/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I really like this DVD. While it doesn't have as much train footage as some enthusiasts like, it does give the same feeling you get while traveling on an Amtrak train. I've done the western coast as well as the eastern corridor and this DVD accurately represents what happens - you stop off to see the various cities, towns and sights, then sit on the train for a while and wait for the next stop. My favourite part of the disc is that it indexes the scenes by city so that you can go back and watch something you're interested in. I've learned some things about Pennsylvania that I didn't know before. The narration is clear and the photography above average which make this production interesting. I also like that he gives the names of the various people that work on the trains because this is part of what makes travel via train enjoyable. In short, if you like travel, trains and photography, get this DVD! It's a steal."
More a travel video

"Although it is named The Great American Train Ride it should be called a visit to Americas Cities. More time is spent exploring numerous stops along the way than is spent showing train travel across the US."

"Too much time visiting cities. I wanted to see more of the beautiful country."
Great video but spends too little time with the train trip

"This video does pretty well with the video scenes from the train itself,but I feel a bit too much attention given to cities along the route much alike to a travel video.The train scenes given are very nice when they are back on subject however. For a train buff,its still a worthy purchase."
