Two Old New Haven RR Videos

From a stock footage outfit.

This one says it’s from 1928.

I’m going to say that it’s more than likely from earlier than that because the train uses paired EP1s rather than an EP2 which was normal for longer trains after EP2s entered the roster.

This one is from 1937 or 1938 during the fiftieth anniversary of the New Britain and Nantesket Beach electrifications.
