Hello all . . .

A couple of years ago, I finally upgraded to an HD TV and a blu-ray player.

The first Blu-ray disc I purchased was the HD Moods "Trains" ©2009.

Within a week, I purchased the Scenic National Parks "Great Train Rides" Blu-ray by Questar ©2010.

What I would like to know, is, are there any blu-ray Hi-Def videos, that have a fixed view from the front of a scenic train, that, simply lets the camera roll, without edits ( or few edits), for hours at a time ? ? ? ?

I'd like to watch a blu-ray that lets me take an ride on a scenic train, that documents that travel, not just for 5 or 10 minutes, but for a ---long--- time.

Do you know of any specific titles that do that ? ? ?

Look for videos that have "cab ride" in the title. I have a couple, such as "Through the Rathole" and "Going to Kansas City". There are others as well, usually Amtrak cab ride videos. I have a couple cab rides from the Empire Builder. Most regular DVDs will play just fine in a Blu Ray player, and the player will upconvert them to nearly hi-def quality.
Just be aware most videos like what you are searching for will tend to put most viewers in a coma from sheer boredom.

Thanks. I'm looking forward to that "coma" ! :)
