Rather 'full-on' but interesting
on 16 January 2011
This set is good value as it is not expensive considering that there are 8 DVDs in the set. All of them are very interesting especially as he covers aspects that are not normally covered in loco DVDs e.g. renewing rails, cleaning smokeboxes, refilling with diesel fuel, checking brake-linings, stacking containers together, filling coal trucks etc. I have subtracted a star because the video editing is quite irritating and appears to be made by someone who usually edits rock videos and so it has some rapid cuts and pans, special effect transitions and at times a pounding rock music background. The presenter is rather 'in your face' larger than life and very much the American guy. However, overall it has more good than bad and is worth the money.
