Volume 1 of Lehigh Valley's Buffalo Division by Bill McLane covers the operations of the branch lines in the Finger Lakes Region in the 1960's.

We'll begin at Sayre by boarding the train with Bill and the crew to head up the Auburn Branch to Auburn. From Auburn, we'll backtrack a bit and head down the Auburn branch on the last plow in 1966. From Freeville, we'll look at the Cortland branch including the last trip to Canastota. Then, we'll travel the Auburn & Ithaca Branch. To conclude Volume 1, we'll make a run on the Seneca Falls Branch to Geneva.

Bill began shooting 8mm home movie film while working on the Lehigh in the early 1960's. When the Brotherhood of Trainmen was having full crew hearings at White Plains NY, the local representative approached Bill and asked if he would take movies while working showing the importance of a full crew to keep the public safe at crossings.

Narrated with commentary by Bill McLane

Good history on Lehigh Valleys Railroad, a fair color film for early years. will have like more train action sound and less narration.

Additional remarks by sabrail:
Narration: Way too much!
Would kids enjoy this? I doubt it.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Yes.

I found this DVD very enjoyable. The narration is informative. The content is excellent. This title covers some areas of Central New York that you probably won't see on any other railfan video. A "must have" for my collection! The quality of the video is what I would expect for the era. Not exactly Hollywood quality but pretty good. These are basically home movies shot by plain folks that had the foresight to record history with the equipment they could afford. A movie camera and color film were pretty expensive back then.I consider myself fortunate to own a copy of this.

Additional remarks by Todd K Stearns:
Narration: Just enough.
Image quality: Good.
DVD Value: Excellent Value!
Recommend to others? A "Must Have"!
