Review of Coal Hoppers to Frostburg DVD

 5 of 5 (1)
The chuff and whistle of steam action comes at us and as the steam locomotive passes, we see coal hoppers and a caboose. A beautiful scene!

Western Maryland Scenic Railroad #734 puts on a great show on a “Photo Freight Special”. The freight here is a nice string of CSX coal hoppers. With a caboose at the end. We're heading with that load uphill, around Helmstetter's Curve, to Frostburg, Maryland. Where we see #734 serviced including a trip on the turntable. Bonus footage of earlier days on the WMSR with first generation diesel action.No narration. Live sound. 30 Minutes.

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.

A little too much.
Way too much.

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.

Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
