Grab bag

Some miscellaneous videos I ran across and should have posted throughout the year, but didn't. First up, No. 6207 A Study in Steel from 1935.

Next up, Redwood Saga from 1946 - "the first thing is to build a railroad"
And then there is The Proclaimers take on the Roger Miller classic.


  1. The Redwood Saga: Brilliant! So many parallels with the Welsh slate industry, the use of Blondins and inclines...loved the shot of the log waggon, overloaded with that huge trunk, going over the problems! No health and safety either! I shall watch that again :-)

    1. That video was quite an eye-opener. So very different from today.
