Death of a Locomotive

October 8, 2011

This beautiful film shot around Rome in the 1960’s tells a familiar story to any railroad historian. Check out the interaction between the people living near the deadline and the locomotives. Also of note is the really neat space suits they used for Oxy-Acetylene cut-off torches, I wonder if this was done for the movie or if they actually wore those.
