Look at what's on my shelf today 

 

 

Clear Signal Video offers a large listing of documentary programs by many different producers, featuring railroad subjects, with some tapes on history, nature, ships, and other interesting topics.  We invite you to submit a list of tapes you'd like to rent this season.  Go to http://home.earthlink.net/~clearsig to browse our listings, and send us your list by email or regular mail.

 

 

Clear Signal maintains a collection of railroad-related videos, now numbering over 2200 titles, which are available for rental on a weekly basis.   All rentals are shipped by U.S. Postal Service.  We pay postage out; you pay postage back.

 

To rent videos, fill out and return the attached registration form.  No entry fee is required. Browse the catalog listings , and make a list of the videos you're interested in renting.   Use Clear Signal's catalog numbers (at far left in the listings) to indicate your choices.  If you require further information about the content of the tapes, let us know what categories you’re interested in and we’ll send descriptive listings.

 

You are not required to request any specific number of rentals, and you can update your list at any time.  We do like to get nice long request lists because that makes our job easy, but if you only want to request one tape, that’s fine.  We do our best to tailor this service to your personal requirements. Needless to say, you can cancel at any time and for any reason, though we hope you’ll never want to.  There is a space on the form for you to indicate how many tapes you’d like to receive at a time.  In a matter of a couple weeks, you’ll receive your first rental shipment.  You may keep the videos one week from the date you receive them.  Packaging material for their return trip is included.

 

Rental fees are as follows: one video - $7.25, 2 videos - $12.50, 3 videos -  $17.50. We send the shipments by Special Standard Mail.  You can receive faster service by requesting Priority Mail (at rental rates of $8.25, $14.50, & $19.50).  Payment for each shipment should be included with the returning videos; we do not require payment in advance.  If your videos are kept longer than one week, we do ask that you add $1.00 per day late fee to your payment.

 

Upon receiving your returns, we will send another shipment within a few days unless you specify longer intervals.

 

Have any videos you’re tired of?  We accept previously viewed railroad videos (producers’ originals only, preferably in original packaging) for credit toward rentals at a rate of three credit rentals per trade-in video.

 

 

This is an easy, workable arrangement that has been working fine for hundreds of enthusiastic customers since 1987, and we hope you will send in your registration without delay.  The pleasure of rail fanning is as near as your TV!
