  1. @Sabres21Buffalo Hi. Yes, this is only a short preview. The DVD is

    great video i noticed that some of the footage was tooken from vignettes of
    the lehigh valley

  3. @saintangerinc You must be referring to Ken Bealer’s footage. The rest of
    the footage has never been published by another producer. While the Ken
    Bealer footage may be from the same source, it was digitally transferred
    and restored from the original film by JPM using high resolution equipment.

    @JhnZ33 Any chance you can upload a Volume 4 with more of the Tift Yard? I
    don’t have the money to purchase this right now.

  6. @Sabres21Buffalo The footage you see of Tift yard is all we have. I wish
    there was more to show.

  7. I love the shot of Republic Steel and Donner Hanna Coke during tifft yard
    scene. At the very end you can see the steam from a coke quench over the
    RS-3’s hood. Great stuff!
