He had g-scale trains and an electronic sound station train whistle played through our sound system. His older sister did not like that one bit!
We had lots of train videos and watched them frequently. Today he is grown and I am an old guy, but I love technology.
I saw this video and I had to have it to view with my son on our LG UHD TV through our nice sound system. I bought the 4k version that comes with a regular blu ray. I found out the hard way that my Sony and Samsung 4k upconverting blu ray players will not play the 4k disk. I was disappointed, but the blu ray was beautiful with great sound. So when the actual 4k players become more reasonable price wise, I'll get one. The history lesson and beautiful scenery was worth it!
Update: 9-10..I finally bought my 4k player and it is certainly worth it. Everything is crystal clear and the sound is incredible. I can't understand any of the less than 5 reviews. If you don't like trains, buy it for demonstration purposes! The price has come way down too for the player and this documentary .
The disc asks you whether to play it in HDR or 'Standard' mode.
In my haste, I accidentally pushed 'Standard,' watched the whole thing, and was impressed.
Later, it occurred to me that I should go back and compare the HDR version,
and oh my! My appraisal went from "Very good" to "OMG! This is stunning!"
In a nutshell, 4K is a big step forward, but HDR is (in my opinion) an even bigger step
forward, re. a gorgeous, life-like picture. For those about to buy a 4K TV, make sure it has HDR
(most will, now, in 2017).
