bikkuri bahn posted a topic in Worldwide RailI wasn't aware of this railway until a few months ago. Just fantastic footage of the prewar New York, Westchester and Boston Interurban. Look at the remarkable infrastructure, reminiscent of heavy railroads (and current Japanese practice) rather than the more prevalent dirt ballast toonerville operations back then. We are thankful that the individual who filmed this way back in 1937 had the foresight to record this operation for posterity.
