Editorial Reviews


This near-two-hour compilation of high-definition-filmed episodes from the fifth season of the public television series Tracks Ahead documents some of the more unique travel-by-rail experiences across the world 12 journeys....Recommended for train aficionados and armchair travelers alike. Three Stars. --Video Librarian

... each segment is well edited and narrated, and you gain a lot of the information in a short period of time about each attraction. I d suggest the segments are more for the average traveler than the average railfan, as the information is not too technical. --S Gaugian

5.0 out of 5 stars Model Railroads January 19, 2007
A great collection of various model railways. The well shot, well produced DVD gives a great look at the different Scales, such as O, G, HO,and S scales. Encludes as special features the Bicential Train (1976)Union Station Wash. D.C.,Wisconsons's Whiskey River Railway, Terminal Railroad of St. Louis and the Ringling Circus Train. As they show the model and Life size trains they also interveiw the various persons who built and run them. If you like trains or modeling train indoors and outdoors you will enjoy this first class production by the PBS Tracks Ahead people. Entertaining and informative.

4.0 out of 5 stars Tracks Ahead Great Model Railroads September 27, 2007
After watching this video I realized there are many many ways to develop your home layout to look realistic without spending much money. The whole DVD presented a great view on different projects and ideas to help a person to decide how to work on a layout and time is a big factor plus you can always make changes. This DVD would be very helpful for a beginner and also help trying to decide what gauge to use.

5.0 out of 5 stars Need ideas?? July 12, 2014

My grandson has been a model train enthusiast for several years but has sometimes gotten in over his head on his lay-outs. I'm hoping this will give him good ideas for practical lay-outs so he makes better choices.
