The two inconsistently titled volumes that make up this Greenport to Jamaica cab ride are a poor value. Both videos Greenport to Jamaica (actually Ronkonkoma) (Vol. One) and Ronkonkoma to Jamaica (Vol. Two) could easily have fit on a single disc. What's worse, there is virtually no narration, so the viewer has no idea what stations and towns the train is passing. Only by listening carefully to the background chatter does the viewer have any sense of the train�s whereabouts.

Agree with the reviewer. I was disappointed in these videos as well. And agree the best LIRR DVD is the Penn Station to Port Jefferson one. See my review on that one under that listing.
One point of correction. The DVD about the ride to Speonk (agree it's also very good) does not start at Penn Station. It starts in Jamaica. If you want a cab ride of the mainline from Penn then the Penn to Port Jeff DVD is the only one that covers it.
