Detroit Passenger Trains 60’s and 70’s (16mm Color Film From The Camera of Emery Gulash)
Detroit has a long history as a vibrant railroad city. Nearly a half-century ago, when Emery Gulash shot these action scenes of passenger trains in and around Motor City, more than a half dozen major railroads served the area, most with their own distinctive passenger service, often with cars from different railroads in the same colorful train.
Today all of them are fallen flags, absorbed or merged into larger companies during the non-stop mergers of the 1960s and 1970s. Go back with us to that era for a real blast from railroading’s past. It was the Last Hurrah before the homogenization of passenger service nationwide by Amtrak.
This program includes footage of the following: B&O, C&O, Canadian National, Pere Marquette, N&W, Penn Central, Wabash, GT, NYC, Canadian Pacific, Budd Rail Diesel.
