Super 8mm film with original Magnetic Striped Audio
The 1970s were a time of change for railroads all over the country—and all over the world.
Roger Koenig was out with his Super Eight movie camera's recording much of the train action before it was gone forever. Roger lived west and south of the Windy City, so it was only natural he would frequently head for the hotbed of rail activity at Joliet Union Station.
But he also visited Homewood, Blue Island, Oak Forest, and several other communities outside of Chicago. He also got farther west – to savor the last remaining switching operation handled exclusively by steam locomotives at Sterling, Illinois, until the early 1980s.
Ride with us now as we relive rail action in the 1970s and seen through the movie camera lens of Roger Koenig...
