I originally bought this 4-DVD set because I'm interested in learning more about Canada, and in my opinion the title of the set, "Canada By Rail," implies that it IS mostly about Canada. However, now that I've seen it I think this is really more intended for train enthusiasts. It's true that there is some very good footage here of Canadian scenery, but the overall focus is really on the trains themselves, specifically those of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Often there is shot after shot of the trains and many of their cars moving by, with the narrator describing the trains as well as railway history and facilities in quite much detail, while overall there is not much information about Canada or its history and wildlife here.

The DVDs vary a good deal in this. For instance, the second one in the set, A Yellowhead Winter, is the one that focuses most on Canadian scenery, and is very pleasant to watch with its narration minimized and accompanied by a nice musical score written for the film. The last two, "Canadian Pacific's Mountain Sub and Rogers Pass" and "Canadian Pacific Heart of the Rockies" are almost entirely about the trains, with mostly close-up shots of them so you don't see much else. The first one, "Tracks of the Beaver," provides a fair amount of scenery, but the amount of train footage can get tedious if you're not particularly interested in them, and the music on that DVD is more like bad elevator music that is often too loud.

The title "Canada By Rail" is also misleading because we actually just see WESTERN Canada, and a pretty limited area even of that, mostly along the border of Alberta and British Columbia, and not very far north.

This is a wonderful set for those who like the work of Peter Crook. He's a noted producer, videographer and railfan, very well known in the community of those who enjoy railroad DVDs. This set of 4 DVDs about the trains crossing the Canadian Rockies and Selkirks was originally made as 4 separate films which have here been combined. The price is considerably below what just one DVD would have cost when first issued, so this is fantastic value.

As another reviewer has noted, these are not travelogues or documentaries about Canada. The focus is on the trains, but Mr. Crook always takes the time to include many shots of the scenery through which the trains are traveling. The Rocky and Selkirk mountains in Canada are spectacular and there are many shots of them and of the varied wildlife that is encountered near the railroad tracks.

For anyone interested in trains and in the mountain scenery of Alberta and British Columbia, you couldn't do better than buy this set.

Not having been in as much of Canada as I would have liked, I found this DVD,(and its companion DVD, America by Rail) both interesting and informative. Some of the places these railroad workers had to work is simply amazing, and with nothing much except hand tools.
