Review of Santa Fe Super Chief to Amtrak Superliner Southwest DVD

"The Train of the Stars" wended its way through Cajon and Raton passes and into American lore. We sample some of the Hollywood connection (Laurel and Hardy demonstrate how not to board a train...) and the motive power changes from the earliest E-Units to FP45s. Go on board the sleepers, diners, lounges and Pleasure Domes. Into AMTRAK, view early consists with thru NY sleepers, arrival of SUPERLINERS in 1980, the mail and express experiment, and sample the on board experience. Also 1960 film: "Better Way for the Santa Fe."

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"!
