046 Southern Pacific Classic Steam Volume 1
56 minutes - Color
Volume 1 begins with some classic 16mm footage of Daylights, Cab Forwards, and other power in beautiful settings plus some steam scenes from S.P. safety films. Then you'll find Joseph Schmitz's 8mm footage of a 1954 visit to the Tayllor Roundhouse followed by a live his sound footage of a Cab Forward at Oakland, San Francisco steam Commute trains in 1955 before chasing Cab Forwards and AC-9 3805 on the Modoc Line. There are some long pacing scenes of Cab Forwards, all in color and with live sound!
I also think you'll be amazed at how well the 8mm film has transferred to video. We sent it to a professional lab for a liquid gate transfer and some of it looks really stunning.
