A 1960s Train Travelogue DVD
From the Super 8mm films of Joseph Seidl, C. Vision Productions proudly presents “A 1960's Train Travelogue”, a moving portrait of vintage and exotic railroading in the 1960's throughout several parts of the US and Canada.
Joe embarked on several rail safaris with his Argus Super 8mm camera that includes the C&NW and Milwaukee Road in his hometown of Menominee, Michigan. Other roads Joe covered near his hometown were the Soo Line and the Green Bay & Western in northeastern and central Wisconsin. During his jaunts to Michigan's Upper Peninsula he captured the Lake Superior & Ishpeming Alco's on the Marquette Iron Range.
Joe frequented the Canadian railroads as well documenting the Canadian Pacific along the northern Lake Superior shore and the Canadian National and Ontario Northland railroads. Included are shots of the “Canadian” in its maroon and gray scheme, the “Super Continental” on the CN, along with the Turbo train. You will even see the “Northland” and the “Polar Bear Express” on the Ontario Northland.
Entering the Navy in 1968 he shot the CB&Q trackside while stationed at the Great Lakes Naval Center. While stationed elsewhere in the country he was able to capture a former Santa Fe PA-4u, now painted in the blue and gray scheme of the Delaware & Hudson pulling the “Laurentian” through Whitehall, New York and Seaboard Coastline E6's, E7's, and E8's pulling the “Gulf Coast Special” through Charleston, South Carolina. Other interesting roads that are featured are of the Penn Central GG-1's in Maryland, the Great Northern in Superior, Wisconsin and CB&Q 2-8-0 steam locomotive #4960 pulling the Ringling Brothers Circus train between Lodi and Helensville, Wisconsin.
And we don't stop there. We go back to the late 1950's thru 1966 to see some Milwaukee Road and Soo Line action in eastern Wisconsin from the camera of Lynn Longley.
So grab your popcorn, turn off the lights, and sit back and enjoy the multitude of majestic railroad color and heraldry, and enjoy your own personal travelogue.
