Christmas Trains - Pentrex

Post by Kevin Wilson-Smith »

What a good idea! And what a fun DVD!

Sub titled "Christmas Trains of All Sizes Across America" this DVD lives up to its name, covering nine different Christmas "trains", ranging from steam locomotives and modern diesels to toy train layouts and garden railroads decorated with holiday scenes.

Included are :-
* The Huckleberry Railroad Christmas Train in Flint, Michigan
* The Galleria Wonderland Express in Dallas, Texas
* CSX's Santa Claus Special in Kentucky and Tennessee
* The Hocking Valley Scenic Railroad Santa Claus Train in Nelsonville, Ohio
* The New York Botanical Garden's outdoor garden railroad in New York City
* Cincinnati Gas & Electric's O-gauge B&O model train
* The Cincinnati Zoo's "Festival of Lights" garden and live steam railroads
* The Neiman Marcus Holiday Express
* The BNSF "Santa Claus Express" in Springfield, Missouri—a diesel-powered Christmas train covered with over 20,000 glowing lights!

When it comes to Christmas trains Americans lead the world - marvelous decorations, lights and pazzaz. The cover picture below will give you the idea if you do nit know what I am on about!

And do not be put off at by the inclusion of the miniature trains, as these topics are equally interesting - much variety with a good commentary and crisp rapid coverage that never gets slow or boring.

Just over an hour, this is also a train DVD (dare I say it) the whole family will watch and enjoy!
