Here is a very interesting look at railroading in the USA Northeast, New England district. Filmed in the 1930's to 1960's. This video gives us a great insight into railroading as it was then. There is narration, which is based on the facts known of the time frame, and some very interesting scenes. Starting with steam operations in the 1930's, and moving along to various locations. While the image quality may not be quite to the know standards of 2009, we must remember that this is real footage, un-rehearsed, filmed as the events unfolded with the finest equipment available at the time, which has been preserved for our enjoyment. My children watched the video with me, and they truly enjoyed it, asking questions as it went along. For the history love in us, the viewer will truly enjoy this excellent production of days that will never come back. It is a "must have". To the Producers.... A job well done.
