      A two-hour celebration of the Green Mountain State's railroad renaissance celebrates the Vermont Railway, Green Mountain Railroad, Clarendon & Pittsford, Washington County, New York & Ogdensburg and their connections. Experience vintage film, photos, interviews, anecdotes, ephemera, and more. Jay Wulfson, Harold Filskov and a dedicated team created the first state-owned, privately operated railroad in the country. Top management, maintenance experts, train crews, rail customers, historians, and a former Vermont governor share fascinating rail tales you'll want to hear again and again. VERMONT RAILWAY: 50 YEARS was painstakingly created by Vermont filmmaker and railroad insider James R. “Jim” Jones during the past decade. This ambitious documentary spotlights the rebirth of former Rutland Railway mainline from Burlington, Vermont to North Bennington and White Creek, New York from 1964 to the present. All facets of the operation are explored, including steam excursions over the years. This real-life story of “the little engine that could” is the first of six documentaries in the “VERMONT RAIL SYSTEM SERIES.” Purchase the DVD at http://vermontmadevideos.com
