Support Our Channel : www.patreon.com/PeriscopeFilm Created in the mid-1950s, this classic Santa Fe Railroad film celebrates the company's past and present as preparations are made to "meet the challenges posed by the future." The Centennial Celebration of 1950 is shown with railroad president Fred G. Gurley. The steam era is represented by Locomotive No. 1, aka Cyrus K. Holiday, a 2-8-0, and 2-10-4 Texas type No. 5034. When the 5034 locomotive heads into the roundhouse (symbolically ending the steam era) heavy diesel locomotives take their place. "On the Santa Fe nothing is permanent but progress," says the narrator, noting that new rails are installed at a length of 1400' and 135 pounds. Diesel units shown in the film include Warbonnet F-units, E-units, and Alco PAs, and a section of the film is devoted to the San Francisco Bay ferry system. Primarily this is a film about progress, efficiency and the development of the railroad, as well as safety. There are many examples throughout the film of preventable accidents including a Fairmont motor car struck by a train, and injuries caused by sloppy work. One of the developments cited in the film is the new butt welded rails being installed along the ATSF: "the Santa Fe of yesterday has been rebuilt from the ground up. The days of fifty and sixty pound rail are long gone, and even the heavier rail which replaced it is now itself being replaced by rails a hundred and thirty pounds or more..." (2:30). The film also cites CTC, the centralized traffic control form of railway signalling, better, automatic coupling systems, This film is part of the Periscope Film LLC archive, one of the largest historic military, transportation, and aviation stock footage collections in the USA. Entirely film backed, this material is available for licensing in 24p HD and 2K. For more information visit www.PeriscopeFilm.com/
