Yes, a great vintage production, though it is not new. It was released on VHS at an earlier time. I got my copy on DVD recently. As far as I know, it is the only commercially-released video of railroading on the Niagara Division of the B&O, outside that of what Bill Price might have taken in '53 and '54, unless someone else knows of other vintage films from that time.

Yes, this is a re-release of the VHS version. Video has been cleaned up a little and includes some footage from the meseum.

Not sure if VHS is still in stock, I will check.

It's an excellent color film that documents the line between Rochester and East Salamanca... great shots of locations that have changed drastically over the last fifty years. A sometimes corny narration, but the images can't be beat!
