The ‘Complete Silverton’ is just gorgeous. I’ve seen several spectacular films taken between Durango and Silverton, but yours, with the shots from the chopper and the speeders plus your superb editing, is far superior.

The Complete Silverton. Filmed as never before: from the air, from the cab, the pilot, and track speeders racing in front of the engine. Roundhouse, turntable, this DVD has it all! In part 1, a single engine travels from Durango to Cascade Tank. Part II features a doubleheader with freight cars. The film covers almost the entire line with 49 run pasts, aerials and chase sequences. Color 28 minutes

Just played ‘460 Narrow Gauge in Winter’ three times in a row. If anything could be perfect these tapes are. Just as advertised, they are a fairy tale come true. There is no limit to excellence of your tapes.
