Very enjoyable Balt!  "Thanks For The Memories!"

Yeah, even the music was well-chosen!

Not premotional - but showing operations on the BR&P during the 1950's

Very interesting Balt!  Thanks!

They used to show films like this in schools years ago.  Kids knew their electricity didn't just come from a hole in the wall, food didn't just come from the market, gas didn't just come from the gas station, I could go on and on. 

Lack of instruction like this explains a lot of the shocking ignorance nowadays.
