Movie Reviews

First-rate production values, but superficial coverage.
J. Tracy | Tucson, AZ United States | 09/24/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Like all the TWBT DVD's (there are 10) this one has excellent video quality - sharp, good color, professional narration - but it really tries to cover too much ground in an hour. You get a glance of the train station, a few shots of the passengers and a scenic view or two from the moving train, and then you are at the next location, maybe with a shot or two of a few famous sights. There is NO "railfan" data about the types of locomotives, rolling stock, etc. Overall, I believe you do get your money's worth but look elswhere for in-depth coverage of the countries visited or the details of train operation."

"Wery good to see local trains with local people. Music can take off the film."
