War Trains


War Trains

Review Amazon - I just found this amazing DVD at a RR museum. I'd held off buying the box set of VHS tapes, but the DVD price was worth the risk.

It turned out to be no risk! "War Trains," is a fine collection of documentary footage, films from servicemen in different time periods, and incredible (pardon the pun) training films from WW2!

The film has some narration and explanation, and is largely a compilation of archive footage. This shouldn't prevent you from buying this film, as they found material that I have never seen before. Mostly, the film goes into the WW2 time period. I found that the instruction films from WW2 about how a US RR Operating Battalion works to be very informative. The OSS sabotage films are very interesting and are worth the price of the DVD by themselves, in my opinion.
