    This is my favorite in the series, covering a lot of Detroit action on the old Detroit Toledo and Shoreline route. I have seen this entire series several times. Its one that you can go back and re-watch. I have to give this person credit for their excellent videography skills. Grand Trunk Western is a rare thing to see on video but this series takes you through the entire GTW system in great detail. A lot of GTW blue with a few CN locomotives dating it in the early ’90s. There was also a fare amount of BN green on coal trains. Defiantly worth buying the whole series.
