New York New Haven and Hartford Railroad DVD (1940)

For years The New Haven called itself The Aristocrat of New England Transportation. While this slogan pampered its Boston Brahmin and Wall Street commuting clientele, it hardly defined the NYNH&H. A Great Railroad At Work, sponsored by the New Haven in 1942, shows the railroad as a brawny, fleet-footed freight and passenger system that combined class with clockwork service (sometimes timed to the quarter-minute). It also had the most diverse roster of equipment of any railroad in the United States and probably the world: electric locomotives, steamers, buses, trolleys, self-powered MU cars, plus tugs, barges, and ferries. This film was produced by the leading industrial filmmaker of the time, Jam Handy. The 35 mm black & white images are as sharp today as they were when the film was first shown in theaters and to community audiences 50 years ago. Among the many highlights are archival views of the legendary passenger express, The Yankee Clipper, driven by an elegantly-liveried 4-6-4 Hudson; New Haven's high-speed electric and steam corridors; Park Avenue Viaduct, on the great feats of railroad engineering, and Grand Central, the grandest terminal of them all. You'll discover what luxury travel New Haven-style was all about when you board its sleek commuter coaches, Pullmans, lounge cars, parlor cars, and diners-where a full-course New England dinner cost 40 cents (clam chowder 10 cents extra). You'll meet the New Haven workhorses: 2-C C-2 electrics with pantographs riding high, mighty 4-8-2 Mountains, awesome 2-10-2 Santa Fe's, busy electric switchers, and the first-generation diesels that would soon sound the final whistle of New Haven steam. Narrated by Lowell Thomas.
