This Kawasaki produced film features the rail transit products of this industrial Japanese giant. Roughly the first third is set in Japan, and shows streetcar operations in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, and rapid transit and AGT systems in Kobe and Sapporo. The rest of the tape shows the manufacture, testing, shipping and final assembly of the light rail cars for Philadelhpia's subway-surface and Red Arrow lines, along with extensive coverage of the new cars in operation.
The film was professionally shot and edited, and is fast paced and informative. The sound track is mostly narration (in English) and music. The entire film is devoted to the cars and their manufacture, and there are no talking heads.
