 Volume 4 begins in the spring of 1973, in Michigan. There some effective low light level scenes. The Detroit River tunnels are a good segment. River Rouge piece starts slow with too much boat traffic, and picks up nicely.

Surprise, a Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey circus train rolls through Ohio. Emery follows this move to Detroit. Later, we visit the fast, electrified, Northeast Corridor. Seabrook, Maryland is our jumpimg off point. There you’ll see the contrasting Amtrak Metroliners to old GG1 led passenger and freight trains. Many electric trains are running under the catenary.

Quality. High quality, 16mm film images and sound. Narration is good, though he seems more certain of locations then some of the equipment. Sound is fine, as you would expect.

This is a fine presentation of the Penn Central series. Highly Recommended!
