New Video Uploaded to YouTube
The latest of my Meridian Speedway Productions videos to be uploaded to YouTube is a 24-minute trip down Memory Lane from 1992. This video was taken on a 3-day road trip from New Orleans, LA to Monroe, LA via Vicksburg, MS to ride an NRHS excursion train on the former Arkansas and Louisiana Missouri Railroad from Monroe, LA to Crossett, AR and back.
The Arkansas and Louisiana Missouri (A&LM) railroad was taken over by Georgia Pacific in September 1991. Georgia Pacific renamed the railroad the Arkansas Louisiana and Mississippi (A&LM). This change occurred prior to the shooting of this video, however, both the NW2 locomotive and the caboose retained their original A&LM markings at the time of the video so they are referred to as A&LM in the video captions.
This video contains footage along the route of my Proto-Freelanced Meridian Speedway and contains some scenes taken in Vicksburg, MS which is going to be the setting of the Model Railroad I will be building soon. I am very excited to have found this footage and now have it available on-line for viewing!
