The Iron Horse-Better than expected,
This review is from: The Iron Horse: UK Edition [DVD] (DVD)
I had been tempted by this title for some time, & as a Western Railroad enthusiast welcomed the chance to buy same, and in its entertainment content found it enjoyable to watch, and agree with the comments made by the reviewer Michael Bo from Denmark
However, i would have liked to have seen more railroad operations & action, (but then i am a fan of trains with big smokestacks & cowcatchers) Look for the big error, the U.P loco in the film is shown as number 116 opposite Jupiter, the title caption card also claims this, but checking all historical details i find repeated reference to the U.P loco as being numbered 119!
I have double checked the DVD and if fact is correct, some one all those years back got it wrong, but that aside its still a good film.
