TC&GB Historical Movie

This home movie was shot using Regular 8mm film without sound back when the TC&GB provided passenger service in the caboose.  For a modest fee, paying passengers could ride in the caboose from Ajo to Gila Band and return.  The movie shows a number of historial buildings and locations along the line.  The runtime is approximately 15 minutes.
