Review of New York Central Steam Diesel & Electrics in the 1950s & 1960s

Railfan and professional railroader Lee Avis is joined by railfans Howard W. Ameling and Joe Sova for this look at the NYC on the Ohio Division, around NYC and Harmon Shops. Watch Mohawks, Hudsons, FM units, RDCs, Sharks and much more as we see crack NYC passenger trains on the Ohio Division, around Cleveland (C.U.T.) and New York City. We also visit the shops and see car washing, switching/building passenger trains and the Harmon Diesel and Electric shop area.

Shot on silent, B&W 8mm film and that is how it comes to you, backed with music, as silent "film" now on DVD.

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"!
