If your want to see 12 hours of railroading, this is for you.
But this Questar product is--perhaps in its entirety--a remix of previously published material. This fact is not mentioned anywhere in the online details or on the jacket or liner notes. Here's where eight of the twelve hours were previously seen:
"Continental Divide" is Wild Rose Productions' "VIA Rail Across Canada."
"Donner Summit" was previously released by Pentrex.
"Surfline" was released by Video Rails in 1993.
"Blue Mountains" is the first hour from Pentrex's "The Blue Mountains Combo."
"Great Mississippi" is an edited portion of Pentrex's "Winter on the Upper Mississippi.
"Shenandoah" is in part the Pentrex video "Winchester and Western."
"Rio Grande" and "Union Pacific" are both Pentrex products.
In some cases, the video footage credits the prior publisher; but in other cases there is no such credit.
Don't get me wrong....the video is of high quality, and this is an excellent "collection." After all, Pentrex, Video Rails, and Wild Rose do great work. But I would have appreciated being told in advance that this collection "contained previously-released video."
If you already have a modest railfan library, be prepared to duplicate some of your current holdings. This risk of duplication makes the video less a bargain than it might have been.
