Review of Seashore Lines in Steam DVD

Lee Avis shot the PRSL main line between Philadelphia and Cape May, and around Atlantic City in the 1950s. This is rare footage now brought to you edited and professionally transferred to DVD. We'll see passenger trains, freight trains and some shop and switching footage - including a 0-8-0 tank engine "Reading Locomotive Works Shop Switcher". Color footage of PRSL steam in the 1950s is rare!

Most of the DVD is steam, there are a few First Generation diesels here too. This was shot in silent 8mm and that is how it comes to you, backed with music, as silent "film" now on DVD. No narration/sound.

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"!
