In 1967, Emery Gulash photographed the: C&O, DT&I, New York Central , Norfolk & Western, and more in this dvd. This is a true classic of mid-sixties era railroading.

There is much to see in this film. The Michigan area has an excellent assortment of trains. The vintage locomotives and rolling stock are fantastic.

Quality. Pristine, 16 mm film shot by one of the best cinematographers of the time.

Narration is good. The cinematography is top shelf!
