New York Elevateds DVD
Two great rail photographers combine their talents and exhaustive research to bring the elevated trains of days gone by to your living room. With every run past identified by map, the film captures as many as possible of the antique cars in operation before the reequipping of rolling stock in the 1950s. The film features gate cars—many built in 1904 and 1905—and glimpses of what was then considered modern: the R12, R14, R15 and the Worlds Fair Blue Bird specials of 1964-65.
Detailed coverage includes such oddities as the Polo Grounds Shuttle, the Dyre Ave line from rags to riches, and conversion of the Myrtle Ave from elevated to subway, as well as crossing gates still at work. In addition to many routine snow scenes, full blown blizzards on the Flushing, Myrtle Ave and Brighton Beach lines are shown.
