Mighty Machines: Making Tracks
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
The Mighty Machines are hard at work making tracks from the train yard to the city, and on the highway!
It all starts with the tough trains that haul cars and freight across the country. It's no easy job to get them chuggin'!
Then, Buddy the Bus shows us how he and his friends get people to work and school each day! The 'O' trains, the GO trains, the subway trains and the street cars all rumble down the rails to do their part!
Dig it out over here; pile it up over there! Life is a highway for Sammy the big orange shovel, Dozer and Scooper. They're all pitching in to build a new road. So many Mighty Machines are needed to roll out a road for all the cars, trucks and buses that travel each day.
All aboard for an adventure in railways and roadways!

This DVD features real trains in the train yard, and repairing the track. Our son loves to watch it. He also watches the other two episodes on the DVD without too much trouble; the transit one contains some trains, and the road building one he likes as well.
The voice-overs can be a bit over the top or grating at times, but overall are a nice way to transition from the cartoon trains to real-life trains.
There is a picture of a train on the Box
There are not a lot of trains on this DVD compared to others.
There are too many Buses, Trollies, and Dump Trucks that really just act as filler.
The camera work is poor; often shooting too close to their targets (trains) or only shooting the bottom half of trains.
The female narrator is is is.... well lets just say Im sure she is trying her best.
I Can not recommend this DVD.
I would suggest these two titles for your train lovers:
1) Real Trains for Kids: Mom and Pop video that is chuck full of trains and their daily doings. Really wholesome.
2) Lots and Lots of Trains: Entertaining and instructional with plenty of songs and an abundance of trains.
It's like this guy notices his kid oogling a piece of heavy equipment and then decides to become a movie producer. The narration is 3rd rate, the scripts are equally poor, and as I mentioned the photography is about as bad as anything I've ever bought commercially. I'll bet the producer is a bazillionaire because he sure didn't plow the money back into his product.
We have several of these series and love them all. Moms and dads, I highly recommended these DVD's for boys and girls as early as age 3! You won't be disappointed, and neither will the little ones!
