Two(approx.) 15 minute movies on one DVD. The first is from the late1940s and shows railroad police (called Special Agents or CinderDicks in the movie). PRR police are shown, as well as police fromother railroads. Very interesting black & white footage, showingboth steam & diesel, as well as stations, etc. The 1940s languageis particularly interesting The second movie is in color and was donein 1971 by Penn Central police, using hidden cameras.It documents the problem of freight car looting in the New York Cityarea, showing many instances of breaking into cars & stealingcontent, as well as arrests being made. Clips from this movie can beseen in the Feb. 1972 PC POST employee magazine. This is aneye-opening look at PC that I guarantee you haven't seen before! ThisDVD was transferred from a BETA videotape, which itself was madefrom16mm tapes. As a result, picture quality of the video is fair(grainy), due to the loss in picture each time it was transferred.But the audio is fine & the content is dynamite! $15

46.Penn Central Safety Training movies (on DVD or VHS). ONE LEFT!
Threeshort 16mm movies (about 10-12 minutes each), were produced in(guessing) 1969 by PC. I had them professionally transferred to DVD.First is titled "Walking or Standing on Track"; second is:"Operating Hand Switches" and third "Getting On andOff Equipment". Various "old technology" is shown,such as: hand signals (no radios), footboards on locomotives, highladders on cars, journal boxes, etc. Locomotives shown are GG1s,ALCOs, EMD GP40s, etc. Many NEAT scenes with music and narration.Film was shot entirely in electrified territory. It also includes 2short PSAs from the Green Cross. Condition is reasonably good- thereare scratches in the film and some loss of color (most of it has areddish tint to it). But overall, it's a real treat and a pleasure towatch. About 35 minutes total. I only have a few of these left! Ifyou've been waiting to get one, now is the time. Your choice of DVDor VHS- $20.
