Ruth Rockerfeller-Eureka Southern-NCR-NWPY-Photos and video needed

As some of you know I am putting together a video of the NWP working tittle "From Ruth Rockerfeller to NWPco". IT will include a brief history from ruth to NWPY. I have a few pictures of Ruth but I would like to get more pictures and or video of her to be used in this video. The video will be a fundraiser for the NWPRRHS as I give them to the NWPRRHS at no charge to them, it is 100% profit to the group.

Unfortunatly I was working during the time of the ES, NCR, and NWPY and do not have very much material of my own. I can not pay for the material but I will give you credit in the video.

The first 5 to 6 minutes will be the history part of the video. As it looks right now the complete video will be 1.5 to 2 hours long. If the video goes longer than 1.5 hours I will put it on two discs to keep the image quality High. My goal is to have this project done by mid february.

Now I know that during the 80's and 90's there was not the availability of high quality video equipment, so VHS will do. You can email me at roger.graeber@gmail.com

 

Thank you for your help with this project.

In addition to Machines of ther was also Bates publishing. I have there videos but would like to go with the local route first.

 

I know that Dana Fuller was doing the NWP videos but he passed away, otherwise it would be easy as I knew Dana

Thanks for the suggestion

I don't have any video from back then (I was born 1996), but you may want to contact Macheans of Iron, they produced a video back in the NWRY days documenting the line 1996-1999. It might be hard to get it from them, their copyrighted and probably won't give the rights. Worth a shot though.

I can go to the firehouse and see If I can dig up any picture of the railroad in Windsor from that time, as the firehouse sat right next to the railroad tracks.

If you need any help, I love making movies and am taking classes at my school for video arts and design. 

I can also go out and shoot anywhere just as long as I have a good headsup.
