Review of New Haven Mainlines - Greg Scholl Video Productions

 3 of 5 (3)
This video was the work of photographer, and former New Haven Railroad employee Tom Donahue, and was also made possible through the New Haven Railroad Historical & Technical Association. The film covers mainly the shore line and its mainline with lots of Electric action. The 8mm film is well preserved, including a 10 minute Black and White section of rare New Haven steam in the 1940's. Then the balance is color and features 1950's era material. A variety of locations along the New York to Boston Shore Line includes such places as: Shore Line Junction, Air Line Junction, Mill River Junction, Woodmont, Devon, Burr Road, Green's Farms, and several locations around the Bridgeport area. Also covered is the Maybrook line including the transition from steam to diesel. Mr. Donahue's towerman's eye view gives a different perspective than our other New Haven video, and it is also very worthwhile. This tape also features a light musical background, and informative narration.
