The only problem i have with this video, is the glorification of the government, which lead to the collapse of the american railroad industry & nearly wiped out passenger rail here.

Very interesting video featuring a Pennsy GG1 making a trip from New York to Washington, D.C. in the 1950's, Metsfan. I see they show the President's observation car and mention some of our Presidents.

These were promotional videos shown in select theaters way back when to show people in markets the PRR wanted to woo that they are reliable and such. I am guessing there would have been a tiny bit of confusion over the "filled with water and fuel" part, not mentioning it was solely for passenger car steam generation, not for moving the locomotive.
