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

Triplex Special: Travel over the lines of the old BMT in Brooklyn (with a little incursion into Queens) on a set of three 1927 D type Triplex cars on a charter excursion train in May, 2002. What a treat! These old 1927 cars run and sound great, with lots of traction motor and gear whine in the audio. Even includes spectacular scenes of the Broadway Junction steel bridges, now being dismantled. Also visit East NY yard. 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. Approximate running time: three hours Two disc DVD 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"!
