Review of 3985 On the Move! The City of Los Angeles on DVD by Valhalla Video

 4 of 5 (1)
In May, 1994, the Pacific Limited Group sponsored the City of Los Angeles excursion train from Salt Lake City to Ontario, CA. Once at Ontario, two "Cajon Pass Steam Special" trips ran to Barstow and return. Valhalla Video was there to record the action from Rainbow Canyon, Nevada to Ontario, the special excursions, and 3985's departure for the trip home. Witness a spectacular start at Lugo as the 3985 struggles to move her heavy train uphill, and thrill to the thundering exhaust as we pace the 3985 heading uphill into Cajon Pass! This is a program you will watch over and over again. Hi-Fi stereo audio with limited narration. Digitally mastered and packaged in a durable plastic library case with printed color cover. Running time 58 minutes plus previews.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good
3 Star Good
2 Star Fair
1 Star Poor

A little too much.
Way too much.

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.

Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
A "Must Have"!
