Review of Rails & the Mother Road - A Route 66 Rail Adventure DVD

 4.3 of 5 (7)
Well, this one's a bit different. Elrond Lawrence's book "Route 66 Railway" convinced me that I should go take a look and see what was left of Route 66's artifacts. Disc 1 takes a look at California, from San Bernardino, over Cajon, through Victorville to Barstow, and across the Mojave to Needles and the bridge at Topok. Disc 2 takes a look at Arizona, from Kingman Canyon to Flagstaff and on to Canyon Diablo, Winslow, Holbrook and the the NM border at Lupton. In addition to the trains, you'll see neon, abandoned gas stations, tourist traps and restored depots.

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"!
