Review of Alcos on the Island - The Long Island RR - A & R Productions

 4.4 of 5 (5)
"Out on the Island". To New Yorkers, that means "Long Island". Unless you want to be stuck in heavy traffic, getting there means riding the Long Island Rail Road. That means riding one of the roads ubiquitous multiple unit trains, perhaps transferring at Jamaica to a diesel powered train. In the sixties, that would have been an ALCO diesel powered train. Ride MP-54, MP-70, MP-72 and M-1 MU's and behind ALCO C420's, RS-3's, RS-1's and F-M C-Liner's 68 minutes, color, sound, narration and maps.

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"!
