Review of Tower Junctions

The late 1990's saw something in the Chicago area that had long ago started to disappear elsewhere: Towers at railroad junctions. Towers are interesting by themselves, but the junction means lots of traffic! In this nearly two hour look at towers in the Chicago area, we visit JB Tower in West Chicago, Joliet's UD Tower, B12, in Franklin Park, B17 in Bensenville and Deval Tower in Des Plaines.

Besides unique yard towers we also see Rondout Tower, Griffith Tower, Bend Tower in South Bend, Hohman in Hammond, Jay Tower in Chicago Heights, IHB Tower in Dolton and Ridgely Tower in Springfield. It's pretty much non-stop action on these mainline diamonds!

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"!
