Cab Car Ride is basically a ride in a cab car, as it says. All the way from Libertyville to Chicago's Union Station, the camera always looks straight head. The colour appears to be a bit off, ie... to much green in the trees. Narration is limited, but we are able to hear the conversations in the cab, which is quite interesting. There is not a lot of information about the line or the area, but a few comical stories along the way. Personally, it was not a huge thrill for me, but those fans interested in the greater Chicago area or commuter rail service, it would likely be a fairly good video.

Additional remarks by rrvideoman:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value:: Fair.
Recommend to others? Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
