Two videos of Steam Rail Hudson R711 a couple years ago. Sound could just as well been a Reading G-3 on the Cape May Branch with a Wildwood extra heading home with a train load of vacationers at the Shore on a warm August evening in 1955. Enjoy.

Neat clips.

One of the interesting things that also parallels American practice, at least until relatively recently, is how open (unfenced) the right-of-way is. One could walk out of a field anywhere on this line and come right up to the track.

The coaches vaguely look like something from the Reading, too.

I've had this up before, but it's worth bringing back here. It's one of the best steam films I've ever seen, and I think that comes from being made in 1974, after others had shown what steam on film should (and shouldn't) look like. I almost get the impression that an Australian O. Winston Link may have had a hand in this.

A tribute to the original film, done in a very similar style in the preservation era. Of interest, besides the big steamlined Pacific, are the diesels that look and sound like Alco PAs, complete with smoke.

Enjoy.
