The film starts at Port Clinton and ends at Reading, Pa.

Wow. Absolutely amazing. Of course the graphics look pretty cheezy but what do you want for 1951. I love the old cars. They sure did things different back then. Especially the runaway coal car right thru the grade xing as it barely misses the cars.

The steam loco and caboose are great. I can't believe this branch line was so well maintained, had towers, and trains were going so fast. In 2007 you'd only find a mud path :-(

I just watched all three and they were great little pieces of history. The first one reminds me of the Pennsy and the Reading lines going into Shamokin from Sunbury. Of course the Pennsy took the low road not the high road. Nice to see some H class and a E-6 pulling a passenger cummuter train. Great job posting!
