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.

                                  Engineer of a C&O GP30 grabs his train orders.

                New York Central has numerous GE U- series Locomotives in service.

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

Narration is good. The photography is top shelf!

                      At Flatrock, a lone GP7 has switching chores, at a steel mill.

Norfolk and Western GP9 action at River Rouge. Note the former Wabash diesel.

Excellent action from some classic Fallen Flag railroads.

5 Stars.
