Grand Trunk Western, 8mm Movie, Steam 1958-59, Grand Rapids, MI

I found this vintage railfan 8 Mm home movie on You Tube.

The Grand Trunk Western was always one of my personal all time favorite railroads that had served the city of Chicago Illinois. I loved the GTW for several reasons. One of those reasons...is that the GTW was one of the last North American railroads to utilize coal burning steam locomotives in daily railroad operations until the early 1960's.

This vintage 8 mm home movie, shows the final years of GTW steam locomotive operation in and around Grand Rapids Michigan in 1958 and 1959.

A am also a fan of traditional American Dixieland Jazz music as well.
