August 1955- Reading G-3 #211 with a north bound Wildwood extra at track speed just north of Dorothy on the Cape May Branch. Photo from 8mm film by my late father. I'll post more if there's interset and as I get to them.

WOW! Cool pic! :-D How were you able to get such a good scan from a single 8-mm. movie frame?

Please more pix like that. What a way to be remembered.

Very nice. Love to see the whole film. Any chance of putting it on vhs or dvd?

  by Steam man
I have had the whole set of films my Pop took in the early and mid-fifties put on DVD's by a small commercial outfit who was very helpful in the process. I am not sure about the posting of commercial sites on the board, but if anyone wants more info ,contact me at [email protected]. Please don't use my PM address as I can not access that mail account any longer.

Sorry, I need to clarify the original post and the above post. I did not intend in any way to make this a promotion of any commercial product nor do I have any financial intrest in the DVD sales. The intent was to share some photos of the Seashore Lines that I have for other to view and enjoy. Sorry Mike, if this came across the wrong way.

Just was re-reading through posts on the forum here and checking things out when I noticed this comment...speed reading apparently caused me to miss this earlier...

In any case, no problem Steam...didn't come across in the wrong way in any fashion as I see it...if you've got some more great material like that, I'm sure everyone on here would love to see it, as I know I sure would.

Take care.
