Railroad Related Videos from the Net
« on: December 23, 2017, 08:52:43 AM »
Hi all.....I thought I'd start a thread where we could share railroad related videos that we have run across that would be of interest to the rest of us.

I'll start off with a historical video of Grand Central Terminal in New York City. It is about 45 min. and has tons of background info on the NYC railroad and the building of the structure.

As a bit of background on this station.....I was involved in the restoration because of a client of mine from Yonkers. They had me do the structural steel, concrete, framing and finishes estimates when they bid the job back in the 90's.

I still have the huge role of blueprints from the project that shows all the floors, including the 2 levels of tracks.

Hope y'all enjoy.

Thanks John.....here's one you might like.

It is a 23 min. film shot in the 1920's Ozark's of Missouri for the T.J. Moss Co., the largest supplier of railroad ties in the latter 1800's and early 1900's. It includes video of the entire process from felling the trees, sending downriver, loading onto railroad cars to ship to the sawmill for cutting, the creosoting process and delivery to the customers.

It has a ton of great old railroad related sequences and if you like logging and small railroads, check it out.
