Video celebrates the 100th anniversary of Winnipeg's Union Station!
On October 14th we posted a news item about a 2 1/2 minute video produced by VIA Rail Canada to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Winnipeg's Union Station. That video has apparently been replaced by a newer longer video. So we are replacing our October news item with this one to reflect the change.
The video is a terrific collection of brief video segments ambitiously covering railroading over the last 100 years in the Winnipeg area. The selection of dramatic shots is wonderful!
The video is described as follows on Youtube:
"In commemoration of the centennial of Winnipeg's Union Station, VIA Rail Canada commissioned the production of an original work exploring the historical significance of trains and train travel, from station to railway, in Winnipeg as well as in the building of Canada. This National Film Board of Canada presentation has been compiled from more than 70 years of material archived in the NFB vaults." - From acclaimed Director/Editor Yves Chaput
