CB&Q Movies / Videos

Post by Engineer Spike » Tue Feb 28, 2006 4:15 pm

I knew a guy who had a video of the CB&Q on the East End. It was converted movie footage from 1950s - 60s. There was one shot of pacing a set of E units from Rte. 34, west of Sandwich, IL. The movie ends in Galesburg.
My point is that I am no longer in contact with the owner of this video. It was commercially produced. I asked the Burlington Route Historical Society site, but they must be too busy to bother with me. Could any of you tell me who made this?

I found it on line. It is Burlington Diesel Memories, by Mark 1.
Lots of early shovel noses, E's, GP 30, 35, and Graybacks.
