Review of Gone Forever - Montreals Alcos DVD

 4.7 of 5 (3)
Many things are gone from the Montreal rail scene. The big (and small) Alco's and MLW's, Via F's, FPA4's and LRC's, commuter F's, flags, open auto racks, cabooses and hooping up orders. This is a much requested redo of our very first program, Montreal's Alco's, completely re-edited with some never before seen footage. Taped around the Montreal area in 1988 and 1989, these are never to be repeated scenes of big Alco's, every train, even intermodals, with a caboose, and most flying flags. Image quality is not as good as today's broadcast digital, but you can't go out and see this stuff!

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"!
