Come to the Fair ERIE DVD Train Video
In 1939, the bankrupt ERIE produced 'COME TO THE FAIR' (15 minutes B&W) to promote travel to "Little Old New York" and the World's Fair. Onboard and trackside glimpses of the "Erie Limited" lead to historic vistas of the City:
River traffic, double-decker buses, subway, aerial perspective of New York as it looked a half century ago. And fascinating insight into the fair being built. Color film from the '39 fair includes the "Railroads on Parade" pageant.
Also seen is the 1943 feature on wartime transportation, "Right-of-Way" (10 minutes, B&W). Erie is among featured carriers as we are taken behind the scenes.
Then the next 40 minutes travel to Scranton, Dover, Port Jervis, Moonda and Starrucca viaducts, and many other locations, to witness some fine Erie Lackawanna activity. Narration plus detail notes enclosed inform you as these color classics from several photographers roll across your screen. All can agree that the Property sure looks different now.
