Nice Footage of the Pere Marquette Railroad
After the Pennsylvania Railroad, several other railroads are of interest to me--but none more so than the Pere Marquette.
At one time part of the old Van Sweringen empire, it later merged with the Chesapeake and Ohio. C&O's streamlined passenger "Pere Marquette" service in the 1940s featured some of the most beautiful passenger equipment of the streamlined era.
But this evening a little YouTube surfing turned up the following. And while it's not the greatest footage, it still is pretty cool!
