Review of Steam Across the Rockies Royal Gorge on DVD by Valhalla Video

 4 of 5 (1)
The OFFICIAL VIDEO of the Royal Gorge Steam Special, the last steam passenger train to operate through Colorado's 1000 foot deep Royal Gorge in June, 1997. U.P. has since closed the Tennessee Pass line. Valhalla Video Productions was selected by the Central Coast Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society to produce this video. Valhalla had 5 camera crews on board and trackside capturing this exceptional trip. Also includes historic footage of D&RGW passenger trains in the Gorge. Features Hi-Fi stereo sound, maps, and narration. Packaged in durable plastic library case with printed full color cover. Length 82 minutes on DVD. One of our all time best selling videos. The scenes through the Royal Gorge alone are worth the price of the program.

Overall rating for this DVD? 5 Star Excellent
4 Star Very Good

Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)? Poor.

How would you rate the VALUE of this video? Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.
