Review of Arkansas & Missouri Railroad

When the Burlington Northern spun off it's ex_Frisco line from Monett, MO, to Ft. Smith, AR, the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad was born. Much to the delight of the railfan community, they developed an all-ALCo locomotive roster. Jim Terrell filmed the line in Super 8 film with sound in camera starting shortly after the startup when the C420's were still in the paint of their original owner. He returned when they were in full AM dress and again in September, 2013 to video tape the Monett turn with new SD70ACe's. 1 hour and 25 minutes, color, maps and narration.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor

The rest is optional but appreciated.

In your opinion, how was the narration level? There was no narration.
Just enough.
Could have used more.
A little too much.
Way too much.
Narration can be turned off.

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.
A little rough around the edges.

How would you rate the VALUE of this video? Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Good value.
Excellent value!

Last question. Would you recommend this DVD to others? Definitely not!
Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
A "Must Have"!
