Review of Railfanning the Upper Great Lakes Volume 1 DVD

In June 1982, Ken Bealer and friends flew into Minneapolis and then drove up to Duluth, MN for a few days and chased a DMIR train to Dock-#5 and back to Proctor.

They then chased a northbound from Proctor to and back from the Fairlane Pellet plant. Then over to Escanaba, MI where they chased a Escanaba-Green Bay ore train behind high-hood C&NW C628's.

At Green Bay, WI, they spent 4 days chasing the all-ALCO road, boat train and road jobs between Green Bay and Winona, WI. The trip ends south of St. Paul shooting BN/MILW freights on the mainline.

Subtitled only, no narration or background music
Color, approximate running time: 66 minutes.

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.

How would you rate the VALUE of this video? Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
