    Found this site yesterday.
    Been checking out the videos. Great old time(1940-60's)video's showing the operation, maintenece of railroads from the Golden Age(Check out the carfloat operation from the New Haven:Great Railroad At Work Pt3).
    Still checking them out. I model modern railroading, but it's cool seeing these old videos.
    Makes me wonder..What would a video made in the same style as some of these, look like today?
    Here's the link:

    Ed, thank you for the link. I tremendously enjoyed the old videos. I think modern style reports would only be half as entertaining.

    There are a few more here that aren't listed in your search results I like the one about the coal dumper from Edison films.
    Search for "railroads".
