Volume 2 - The S & L Story


Follow the trip on a daily run of a local freight train as it makes its way through the rich farmlands of Snyder County, Pennsylvania, over the Sunbury to Lewistown Branch of the old Pennsylvania Railroad. This documented story shows the train leaving the Pennsylvania Railroad yards at Northumberland, PA, and its workings along the branch line to McClure, PA, and return. The train is hauled by the famous Pennsylvania Railroad class H-9s and H-lOs steam locomotives.

The original l6mm color film was taken in 1954-55 by Clarence R. Weaver and much of his original film editing has been left, helping to create a delightful and exciting period of railfanning in the steam era.
