PARailroadFilms(1950s)

The Pennsylvania Railroad produced publicity and safety films!  Pennsy, as it was commonly referred, was the largest railroad via traffic and revenue in the United States the first half of the 20th Century.  The PRR wove right through our region.  So here are a few of these movies.  The one public safety film, Escape from Limbo,  supervised by the Safety Department, is insane!  Its really crazy for a public service approach.  A must see!
