    There was a time about 50-70 years in the making where railroading in the Post-world war ii era was the most popular way to contain some interesting travels during the losing battle against airplanes & automobiles. These 2 1995 videotapes show an incredible look at a great variety of steam (From Switchers to Cab Forwards) & Diesels (Mostly E & F units, as well as Alco FPA4’s) on Union Pacific, Santa Fe, And southern pacific. The interviews with the 4 railroad historians are included.
