Films of Steam in Europe

These films show life in the days of steam in Europe between 1967 and 1975. The films feature some of the last steam operations on national railways of France (SNCF) in 1967/68, Germany (DB) in 1967-1976 and Portugal (CP) in 1970/1973.

All these early movies were shot using amateur Standard 8 mm cameras.
