Review of La Trochita - The Old Patagonian Express DVD

TROCHITA " means NARROW GAUGE 2', 5-1/2" !! and there's 402 Kilometers of it stretching through the vast Patagonia of southern Argentina. 1922 vintage Baldwin and Henschel 2-8-0s alternately labor up the 4% grades, then lunge along the straightaways with a mighty roar out of all proportion to their size. October 2000 digital video is combined with scenes from previous years in order to show the entire route from Jacobacci to Esquel (where Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid once "visited"). Cab rides, speed, the panoramic Andes - even an armadillo chase! A world - class adventure !!

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"!
