Review of New York Transit Redbird Farewell Special 2-Disc Set on DVD by Valhalla Video

Redbird Farewell Special: Ride a 6 car Redbird (1963 R-33 singles) charter excursion train through subways and over elevated trackage in May, 2002. Starting at 42nd St., travel on the 6 line South through the abandoned City Hall station, and then loop North over the lines of the old IRT 6 Line in the Bronx to the Westchester Yard, returning on the D Line, and later riding both the 4 and 1 lines, crossing the Broadway Bridge, and return. Three hours on two DVDs packaged in a double library case with a printed color cover. Most of the video in this program was taken from the head end, giving the motorman's view of the tracks, including subway and elevateds. Hi-Fi stereo sound, and limited narration. Rock steady picture. Two DVD disc set.

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"!
