video or film of 1860's train in motiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Southern Railway : One Thread
Does anyone know of an event in which an 1860's train or locomotive ran over an existing track? I am looking for film or video of such a train. The purpose is for incorporation into a video on Clara Barton who took care of the wounded from 2nd Mannasses/Bull Run and Ox Hill/Chantilly at Fairfax Station, then owned by the Orange and Alexandria line. This is for a local cable-access station in Fairfax, VA, which is a noncommercial station run by volunteers (so this is not a money-making opportunity, sorry!) Such a train was shown on the recent "Abraham and Mary Lincoln: A House Divided." Maybe you know or can guess how or where they got it.

You could check with Kurt Bell, Archivist at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania in Strasburg (rrmuseumofpa.org) --- I know that he has some 8mm BlackHawk film of pre 1900 train footage.
