Don,

Thanks for the links, great movie! I found a clue to the date: about
two minutes in there is a close up of SP 64182 with a reweigh of 11-42.

Hi Folks, On the internet I ran across an archive which has
preserved all sorts of early to mid
20th century promotional films. Here is the address of one film
for the SP.

http://www.archive.org/details/ThisIsMy1940

Although titled 1940, it is probably mid-50s. The 26 railroad clips
- 3 New Haven, one Rock
Island etc are filed in the Prelinger Archive under Transportation -
railroad. If you've not
encountered this before I think they're really neat movies of
Steam-era railroading. Regards,
