"It is a very informative dvd with lots of different trains in it, my son who is four and train mad, loves this dvd, and is always quoting from it.

This video is excellent for young children to enjoy over and over again. It is entertaining as well as educational. Even those over 12 will find the information interesting. My grandsons love watching it over and over again.
This dvd is a favorite in our house. My two year old would watch it daily if he could. I like that he gets to learn about his favorite subject (trains) and have fun at the same time. One of the best aspects about the dvd is that it is appropriate and entertaining for all age groups. There is music and fun remote locations plus enough details about trains to teach both children and adults something new.
My son loved this series! I recommend them to any who love trains as much as my son does. Michael T. Newton
