Films during Edna's day

After showing some film links from Charlie's day in London, time to show some from Edna's day. Living next to the main east/west rail line in Lovelock, trains were a daily feature of Edna's life. From The Travel Film Archive, a look at the trains that were filmed during those early days.

Southern Pacific Sunset Limited dated 1898. LINK

Short clip of the Santa Fe California from 1898. LINK

While not in Lovelock, a typical scene around the train station from 1900. This one is for the Northern Pacific Overland Express 1900. LINK

Another short clip of a train that did past through Lovelock. Dated 1897, the film information says it could have been taken earlier. Southern Pacific Overland Mail. LINK
