As other reviewers have said this is MOST enjoyable to those who are interested in trains, especially steam driven trains.
A couple of diesel/electrics were slipped in there simply to facilitate the telling of the story visually.
The scenery is remarkable.
The story of the building of the railway is interesting and could confirm that ANYTHING is possible given enough MONEY and a strong enough WILL.
The scenery is breathtaking after viewing one wonders IF 3D could really enhance it.
This is a high definition video (not a 4K), the detail and color is at the top end of the 1080P technology so that it seems almost 3D at times.
The 4K version contains the 3D video but my system will only play 1080P (HD) so I COULOD have watched the 3D part but not the 4K part.
Will probably return this disk but reluctantly.
