Pennsylvania Train Stations – Restored &
Revitalized (2002/Inecom DVD

almost make up their own subgenre of special interest videos, from toys to the
full-sized thing. Penn State has a
public broadcasting arm that has produced a decent hour on full-sized Pennsylvania Train Stations – Restored
& Revitalized (2002) and Inecom Entertainment has decided to issue it
as part of their very extensive “Minutes Of History” series.
no less than 16 such stations, many have been converted to new uses, such as
restaurants, but the amazing architecture involved and amazing efforts by a
c0ommitted few to restore and retain their beauty is to be commended. It reminds us of a time when travelling was
not such a plastic rush to get from one place to another and how elegant such a
thing was more often not that long ago.
Very classy is the term that comes to mind and now you can see to what
extent by picking up this solid DVD of the program in something even non-train
fans will enjoy.
X 1 image is shot in analog NTSC video and though it can be colorful, it sadly
has detail issues. The Dolby Digital 2.0
Stereo is sadly flat and not the equal to the problematic picture, so be careful
of your volume switch. Extras include
trailers for other Inecom releases worth your time.
