Review of Southern Pacific Model Trains in Detailed Scenes

 1 of 5 (1)
Two programs on one disc! Both feature the layout and modeling of Bob Calvert. Bob and family model the Midwest and primarily the Southern Pacific, though we'll see lots of '"foreign'" power. The first program is a layout tour, made to be a '"railfan experience'" of the layout.

The second program highlights the equipment and techniques used to bring the models to life. The focus here is on the equipment. We'll take a look at lighting on locomotives and discuss different techniques for getting the most out of a model. Slow run-bys show the models in operation.

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"!
