Description by OLDIES.com:
MEETING THE CHALLENGE (1946): The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad produced this film to promote its "deluxe equipment, courteous service, good food, and on-time dependability." Also on hand to help are pretty "stewardess-nurses" with high-tech "radio-telephones!"
THE FREIGHT GOES THROUGH (1952): Damage and freight loss can result when railway cars are improperly coupled together. This Association of American Railroads film helped workers prevent such accidents before they could happen.
THE RIGHT TO COMPETE (1956): This film illustrates how federal law regulates competition between the railroads and other methods of transportation. Narrator Westbrook Van Voorhis informs us that "you can now choose...based on cost and service!" We all know the railroads are the best way to travel!
NEW DIRECTIONS IN MODERN RAILROADING (1966): Chet Huntley hosts this look at how the railroads have changed since their earliest days, and previews the latest advances in "the art of railroading." "More of us than ever before can experience this advantage of modern living."
SWITCHES - HAND BRAKES AND YOU (1974): The Chicago & North Western made this film to help their employees understand the benefits and dangers in using switches and hand brakes.
TLC (TENDER LOVING CARE) (1978): A fascinating film from the Canadian Railroad about how extra loving care is needed to transport materials involved in the creation of the daily newspaper.
