A cab ride from Washington DC to Philadelphia, PA, is just that; a cab ride in real time with the camera facing forward, and the only editing is the time it takes to load and unload passengers, which is condensed to a few seconds. Filmed on bright day, this is the DVD that fans of this ride will want. The view is scenic, and there are other trains passed along the way. There was some small talk from the people in the cab, but, the route is familiar enough to most people so it doesn't need a lot of explanations. There was no map of the route shown, but, again, Wash. DC to Phil. is a well known comuter ride that gets more riders than almost any other in the USA. Typical first rate cab ride production from a company that makes excellent cab ride train videos.

Additional remarks by Bennett:
Narration: Just enough.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: Excellent!
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
