Good but flawed.,

This review is from: Decades of Steam - Box Set [DVD] (DVD)This is an entertaining and informative series which I have enjoyed watching. The way that the material has been assembled to show the development of steam through the decades covered makes it stand apart from the more typical collections of unrelated shots commonly offered. Unfortunately the soundtrack lets it down. Betraying its VHS origins by being much quieter than made for DVD material, it also fails to get the balance between voiceover and added sound effects right and so the commentary is frequently rendered inaudible by overloud dubbed engine noises. Nevertheless, on the whole I feel the good points outweigh the bad and would recommend this set.
