Mid America at Mid Century DVD
In every good drama there is a key moment of interaction between the players. In the unfolding story of America's railroads, we would suggest Illinois in 1950 as a key stage at an intensely fascinating time. Here crossed New York Central steam which died too soon with Illinois Terminal streamliners born too late. You will witness a unique compilation of items lensed by Taylorville native Ray Vecchie.
C&IM 4-4-0 on the final passenger train, coal unloading operations, and a million dollar yard under construction - then never used! BURLINGTON Pioneer Zephyr, big steam, and ride on Twin Cities Zephyr. Wabash heavyweight Cannon Ball, presidential special, 100th anniversary open house. MILWAUKEE Hiawatha slowing for the 90 MPH EJ&E crossing at Rondout. NORTH SHORE whipping up a snowstorm. SANTA FE FTs and unique E-3a, ROCK ISLAND Rockets, NKP Berkshires, B&O steam, pacing a fast IC 4-8-2, St Louis Union in 1952. Illinois Terminal receives much coverage systemwide. Don't miss the SOO LINE Laker with NYC, PRR Pullmans, and more - including a furious 70 MPH pace of a NYC freight which eluded the auto when the photographer's wife decided the train had won!
There will never again be a convergence of time and geography quite like MID-AMERICA at MID-CENTURY. Drama at it's Best!
