    Default A collection of old film clips from the 30's to the 40's

    I stumbled across this a short while ago. Someone on a Rock Island FB page was asking about if anyone had any info
    on the Case tractors/equipment that was being produced in the Burlington, IA plant in the early 70s?

    Someone posted this little 30 minute gem!
    It starts out with B/W footage and about half way through turns to color!

    it's an All Star cast of roads, NP, GN, MILW, Q, CNW, UP, RI (yum) but there are even shots of NH, SOU, Seaboard, ACL and then some tourist line from what looks like the 50's??
    @moose13 I would suggest you put on some Moose diapers cause I think you may pee yourself several times!
    Most know that I'm not a steam fan, but I was glued to this video! Wow!

    This is not on FaceBook it's a YouTube link.

    Njoy

    Sure, thought you'd get a kick out that, especially with the GN steam.
    You mean an Outside braced caboose?
