I bookmaked the site you sent in the link as apparently this is the only Kodachrome lab left and it also offers other discontinued slide developing which will be good for future reference.

I am sure that that the 2-story tall machine that my professor mentioned was greatly scaled back with time and technology. There are other color slide processor such as Signature color and Seattle Color "mail in" developing. Regardless there are times when you just want to set up and shoot Kodachrome to get the best shots of all those steam era freight car models (mandatory?content)?and now it looks as though you have one source for developing it... Thanks again for the link!

Somewhere I read the great irony that Kodak greatly simplified
and cost-reduced developing Kodachrome film in the 80's or 90's
right at the start of the digital revolution... It sounds like
the technology can be outsourced now -- for example Dwayne's
Photo Service of Parsons KS!

We must remember that Kodachrome was a system whereby the
developing was done by a series of dyes unlike other types of slide
film. My college Photography teacher would say the machine was?about
2 stories tall (who actually knows) and?Kodack could creat a slide
(transparency) any size they wanted including the one that was on
display in Grand Central Station?of the first man on the moon (As he
explained supersized anyone remeber it?). Only a Kodak lab could
develop this film, it's not somethig one could do in a darkroom, like
AGFA or Ecktachrome. It was either spot on or ruined. Kodak handled
the chemicals in their labs around the country (some by license) but
never in someones dark room.
