Interest in 1950's Movies?
Author: sp3811

Periodically I'll come across videos made from home movies of US trains shot back in the 50's in the Nostalgia & Historyforum. I seldom see movies of European trains taken during this period. I'm wo3ndering how much interest there would be 8 mm movies showing railroads from various western Europena countries 1957-1960. I'm not asking on the Nostagia and History board because it seems very much North America focused. Thanks for any imput.

I'm always interested in older RR movies  Europe or North America. I did not make movies in the time frame you mentioned, but I posted all my Super8 movies and later videos on YouTube.

Always interested, and not just in the steam; early electrics and diesels are always worth a look.

Please do, bring on the vintage footage. This material is always interesting.

Ready to view when you're ready to show.

"...how much interest there would be 8 mm movies showing railroads from various western Europena countries 1957-1960. "
