This'll Make BaltACD's Day!

Adn everyone else's too!

Found another YouTube gem, 30 minutes of B&O action from the 1930's to the 1950's, and like the other vid I just posted you'll be amazed at what you see.  So get a drink and some snacks, settle in and have fun!

There's nothing worth a damn on TV anymore anyway!

Can't speak for Balto, but it made my day, thanks.

Video was tremendous - looked like a visitor from 2020 crossed in front of the camera at 32:49......

Viewing that video led me to this one

Cool.  Was watching for places that looked familiar.

Nearly all locations were in the East End of the CNJ, and half the trains were Reading!

But really great photogrphy.  Thrilling to watch.  Did I miss something or were there zero B&O trsains shown?

The Passaic street running really brought back childhood memories.
