Description by

These superb 16mm movies of railroad steam action were taken right after World War II (75% of them in color!) Join us as we step back over a half a century to view and enjoy these memorable rail movies shot mostly during the era between 1945 and 1950 (with perhaps some scenes earlier than that) of the Pennsylvania Railroad in Metro Chicago, St. Louis, Terre Haute, and the surrounding areas and its neighboring railroads.

An incredible array of steamers from the Pennsy appear in this program, such as J-1's, T-1's, K-4's, M-1A's, H Class 0-8-0's, H-6's, and H-10's. Early diesels also show their stuff, such as F-3's, F-7's, as well as Baldwin Centipedes.

Many other railroads' steam and early diesels found in Chicago and the West End are shown including Frisco, Alton & Southern, Terminal R.R. of St. Louis, Grand Trunk, GM&O, C&WI, DM&IR, Erie, Monon, Belt Ry, Chicago Great Western, C&NW, NYC, Wabash, and L&N.
