Review of MK5000s Over Soldier Summit - The Utah Railway DVD

As Monty Python used to put it "and now for something completely different". The Utah Railway has the only 6 MK5000's built, and they ply their trade dragging coal trains over Soldier Summit. They sound very different with their big Caterpillar prime movers, and they look splendid in the Utah's red and gray paint. We visited Soldier Summit in January, 2002, and were granted permission to visit the loader, the unit's cab, and Martin Shops. See and hear these unique units in action!

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"!
