The Niagara Frontier Chapter NRHS Film Collection, Vol. 1

John M. Prophet and Jim Van Brocklin discuss various videos taken by members of the Niagara Frontier Chapter NRHS. It's amazing to see the polished steam engines and varnish from the NYC, PRR, PM, LV, and Erie as well as some of the trolleys in and around Buffalo NY, Detroit, and other places. The Pere Marquette engines were shiny clean and pressed into service to haul not only their own trains but also those of the C&O, Erie, and B&O.


This video is truly amazing. Imagine living back then and seeing this in real life!
