Great Gift for Train Enthusiasts
By Busy Office Manager
from Vancouver WA
I purchased this as a Christmas gift and even though I haven't actually viewed the DVDs myself, the recipient was very excited to receive it and couldn't wait to watch them. He enjoys history and trains and this should provide a little of both, so I would definitely recommend this for someone with similar interests.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
