Review of Remember the Richmond Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad DVD

Here we have day to day operations on the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad. Railfan Scott Nelson captured the RF&P, shot just prior to and right at merger time, with much of the action at ACCA Yard and Doswell where the railroad crosses the C&O main. This is pre-CSX footage with all trains being led by Blue & Gray RF&P GP-40, GP-40-2 and GP-35 units. We'll see switchers, locals, and the Bear Island train with all RF&P Equipment.

The RF&P was chronically short on power, so even prior to the merger they borrowed CSX power, so you will see some older CSX power too.

Video includes no narration, but does include subtitles with locations and train numbers - and original RF&P sound, so you can hear the great sounding RF&P horns! Color and natural ambient sound. No narration.

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"!
