A fairly brief documentary (the box claims 60 minutes; it actually runs a little over 27 minutes) built from a collection of footage shot by Tom N. Trid. The footage varies quite considerably in quality, with some excellent sections, a few in desperate need of level adjustments, and even a few that come in a bit shy on focus. The disc also demonstrates the lackadaisical Madacy approach to DVD mastering, with a soft, grainy image that shows compression and color artifacts throughout. While not as flat as some Madacy projects, the transfer in general looks as though it was originally done for tape mastering, with no thought given to DVD work. The soundtrack is another study in contrasts -- the music sounds very good, but the narration is muffled and extremely boomy, giving the impression of having been recorded on a boombox in a bathroom. The original sound from Trid's footage, meanwhile, tends to be thin and tinny, though mixed loudly enough that it often drowns out the narrator. The disc also includes a trivia quiz and some brief pieces on train robber Butch Cassidy and railroads.This is one in a series of documentaries on the history and lore of the steam-powered locomotive. This episode looks at steam trains in their heyday, with plenty of footage of surviving machines of the era.
