"If you like trains and nature, this is one of the best movies in DVD. All the scenes, narrations and extra features are marvellous. I recommend this DVD for any train fan."

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I have quite a few American vhs and dvd video, I did not know that Alaska had such scenery, I live in New Zealand,and our country has pretty teriffic scenery, but I was most impressed after watching the dvd, it was very clear and well filmed, and all the people are so friendly, a bit like my own country. Thankyou,Regards, J.M.Beattie, New Zealand."
A must view for Alaska bound travelers

"Fantastic DVD. Very Professional and interesting. Scenery is breathtaking and some very interesting insight into the lives of those who make the train system possible.I was also impressed by the demanding qualifications that school aged children must go through if they are desiring a job on the train. They actually compete for the jobs so passengers actually get the "cream of the crop" when it comes to hospitality and knowlege of the state.The history of the floods and earthquakes wrecking havoc on the rail system was thorough.Rent it.. You won't be sorry."
Looking a bit dated
R. M. Joseph | Auckland, New Zealand | 03/13/2008
(4 out of 5 stars)
"We thoroughly enjoyed the programme as a reminder of our stunning holiday in Alaska. The scenery is tremendous and the programme reflects the warm & friendly nature of Alaskans; but with age & a gradual change in programme styles the DVD looks a bit dated. Still good value for money though."
Not really a train trip

"I bought this thinking it would be a train trip thru Alaska, which it is, in part. But there is also alot of airplane footage and boat rides. The entire video is not very informative nor do you see anything that you haven't allready seen in other videos. Wouldn't recommend it if you are looking for information on traveling in Alaska, it simply skims the surface and disappoints."
