Movie Reviews

Misleading editorial review
Jeff A. Shultz | Nuernberg Germany | 08/23/2006
(2 out of 5 stars)

"The amazon review of this as stated is misleading. Stating that the content is with history and, well, the overall review is contrary to what is in the DVD set. It appears that a Small Mom and Pop type of company produced it in a manner where quality was not the top priority. The content is mostly from a spectator view. Almost as if the footage was compiled from tourists footage.
VERY little historical or tech data. Simple interisting tech data. The sound is poor. Voice dubbing is misaligned on one of the segmants. The transition from chapters is abrubt and it skips. Regarding the trains, 90 percent of the trains in the content are small Shay and Cg type trains. Only 2 segments have 'real' steam locomotives that the layman would recognise.
The speacial features are very short and some of it is renditions of the chapter content of the main feature.
This set is by any definition inadequate for the price and quality of content and material advertised."
A Great Ride

"This DVD is a must for train fans. It covers some of the best scenic railroads in the USA. (The Cass Scenic Railroad is a personal favorite--a great trip through West Virginia's mountains in spactacular fall color.)"
