Long Island Railroad Greenport to Jamaica Cab Ride Part 1 DVD

The two inconsistently titled volumes that make up this Greenport to Jamaica cab ride are a poor value. Both videos Greenport to Jamaica (actually Ronkonkoma) (Vol. One) and Ronkonkoma to Jamaica (Vol. Two) could easily have fit on a single disc. What's worse, there is virtually no narration, so the viewer has no idea what stations and towns the train is passing. Only by listening carefully to the background chatter does the viewer have any sense of the trainï¿½s whereabouts.
LIRR fans are better off sticking with the Penn Station to Port Jefferson DVD. BTW, there is also a Penn Station to Speonk and Speonk to Montauk set available. Although both could also have fit on a single disc, the narration is so good that I don't mind having to purchase two separate discs.
Additional remarks by gjampol:
Narration: There was no narration.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value: Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
