"A fascinating hour-long documentary that was just posted on YouTube. Tons of interesting footage from the New Haven's commuter operation, including lengthy interviews with commuters.

'Railroads: End of the Line?'

BY Chet Huntley | NBC News | 1961

Its interesting to contrast the NH operation of 1961 with the way the New Haven Line is operated by MN today. One clear difference - you can't jump on a train that's pulling out of the station anymore. (at 7:18 in the video)"

Enjoyed that.  Thanks,
