The Nickel Plate Story (1953)

One of your Head Trucker's favorite railroad films: a well-produced profile of the Nickel Plate Road, one of the smaller Class I railroads, providing a nice overview of freight operations at the end of the steam era, along with charming glimpses of American life sixty years ago - a time of unbounded optimism and limitless resources, or so it seemed.

Takes me back - thanks. I well remember these films shown in school to the assembled students.

Glad you like. It was really another world, wasn't it?
