Is this the DVD set that you're talking about? http://www.amazon.com/The-Worlds-Greatest-Railroads-5-pk/dp/B000XLQH9O/ref=pd_sxp_f_pt/182-1451161-5504537
What other Railroads are featured in the set? How much North America is featured? Is it worth getting?
I already miss COE/MAL!!!!
That is the one. I am not sure it is $30 good but it is decent. the segment on the COE was just the Dinner Train and was shot over 10 years ago and is pretty short compared to the others. It mainly focused on the inside of the train; the entertainment and food, etc...
There is some other good stuff on the other DVD's, about 15 railroads featured on each of the 5 DVD's from all over the world though mostly the US. There is small gauge stuff, lots of model railroads, trolley cars, cable cars, subways, steam, diesel and bullet trains, etc.. The COE was the only Michigan one. With all the free stuff on the Internet it may not be worth it. The reviews I see online are not good although I am not complaining as I got it free.
If you get it you should go the USED route through Amazon. It is half the price and they are usually just like new.
