Review of Steam to Railfair 99 DVD

 3 of 5 (1)
The biggest steam locomotives in the country traveled to Sacramento in June 1999 to attend the last Railfair of the 20th century. Pentrex captured Union Pacific 844 and 3985, and Southern Pacific 4449 as they made their way to Sacramento from their home terminals.

Pentrex camera crews filmed so much great footage, it wouldn't all fit into our epic program Sacramento Steam '99. So we assembled this video from all new sequences featuring the UP 844/3985 doubleheader from Cheyenne, Wyoming to Roseville, California and SP Daylight 4449's journey from Portland, Oregon to Sacramento.

This DVD presents the locomotives with all natural sound and no narration. On-screen graphics indicate the location of each runby. Thrilling mainline steam action awaits you in Steam to Railfair '99!

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.

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"!
