Larry N. from BEALETON, VA
Reviewed on 4/15/2014...
There are 37 featurettes in this 2-disc set, ranging from the 1940's into the 1960's. About half and half black & white and color, there is a good mix of steam and diesel footage. These are mostly documentaries, but there is a docu-drama in the mix called "At This Moment" featuring actor James Gregory. Several of the features are propaganda films saying how "they" built the entire railroad system without the U.S. Government's help unlike the highway system and airports which were built with U.S. tax dollars. There is also some repetitiveness in many of the films showing the inner workings of the railroad yards. It's a great time capsule of seeing how the railroads operated then as opposed to now and its evolution.
