Movie Reviews

A Must Own Collection
D. Denny | North Carolina | 08/08/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love scenic DVDs. I hoped this would be a DVD set that would put me in the seat of various scenic train routes and allow me to ooh and aah at the beautiful sights passing by. However, this DVD package does not do that. Instead, it does something I enjoyed just as much. These DVDs show you detailed footage of day to day operations of various train routes, mostly from outside the train. You will see a little bit of everything including track repairs, snow clearing and such. The quality of the footage is excellent. The narration is perfect. It is detailed but not annoying or full of tech talk that no one but railway fanatics would understand. The sound is also extremely good. Make no doubt, the scenery is beautiful. In fact, most of the footage is what I would describe as awesome. It more than took care of my desire to see scenic footage. This DVD package definitely needs to be part of your collection if you enjoy watching or riding trains. I HIGHLY recommend."

"Great American Scenic Railways. That title conjoured up an image for my wife and I that meant we were going to be getting our hands on something we, being a couple who have found we enjoy boat and rail sightseeing excursions, could put to good use as a vacation planning guide. How wrong we were. If, however, you're a rail-fan, Someone whose main focus is trains, train cars, yards, and rails, this set is probably a winner."
Great Show- all 'board!

"If you own lots of Pentrex videos/DVDs, you will be dissapointed to find that the Great American Scenic Railway shows are all recycled Pentrex programs repackaged and reformated. However, if you do not have those tapes, or want to upgrade to DVD, this is an excellent collection. The shows themselves are great, with acceptable sound and video. The only other problem with this set is the lack of bonus features. But overall, this is a great show for the railfan in everyone."
