THE NORTH SHORE BROUGHT TO LIFE
Another Masterpiece from Frank Pfuhler. Authentic sound by Russ Jackson
You'll feel a real tug at the heart strings as Frank Pfuhler brings interurban America back to life exactly as it used to be in this unique feature. The journey begins on the Chicago Loop and takes you the entire way to Milwaukee on the world's best known interurban. Streamlined articulated "Electroliners," "Silverliners," freights and plenty of standard, heavyweight "Greenliners" are all seen here. Even includes the Mundelein Branch. Every significant point on the line is covered both from the motorman's seat and at track side: all the principal cities and towns plus mile after mile of 90 MPH from the cab. The three distinctive whistles are heard.
Includes footage of the Milwaukee trolleys, and the famous "Electroliners" are shown after the demise of the North Shore when they ran as "Libertyliners" on the Red Arrow Line between Norristown and Philadelphia.

I'm a big fan of cab ride videos (especially high speed ones) and I bought this more because I was bored than anything else, and thought I'd try it on a lark. I didn't really expect much. Wow! Was this a surprise.
Probably one of the best videos I've ever bought. The video quality is outstanding considering the vintage (the North Shore ceased ops in 1962). Although the sound was added, it was done so well you'd think it was original. There are substantial portions of cab rides covering much of the line at speeds up to 90 mph. This thing was really moving.
The narration really takes you there back in time and introduces you to the history of the line, giving you a good background for what you are seeing. It's like you were really there experiencing it live.
