Review of CSX Over Sand Patch Cumberland to Meyersdale DVD

The Baltimore and Ohio's Keystone Sub had one of the toughest grades in North America. It was also very photogenic. Chester Kamuda spent the last ten years documenting the line from Cumberland, MD, through to Meyersdale, PA. He also caught trains at Hyndman, PA, with the tower still operational, at Fairhope and Mance, PA, and at Sand Patch. He filmed from inside Viaduct Junction tower in Cumberland and in Sand Patch Tower. He also covered the Western Maryland's Keystone and Salisbury Viaducts. Heavy traffic resulted in lots of action scenes as long freights struggled up the hill. One Hour and 58 minutes, 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"!
