Remarks & Notes 
Just a few months into revenue service and doing what it was built to do, a United Aircraft TurboTrain races through Milford, CT, on its way from New York to Boston. At the time the Turbos covered one round trip a day and commanded a premium fare. For railfans, the mini-domes at each end provided a unique view that was worth the extra cost.

Pace and pan shots of trains. If you're not in the locomotive cab or on-board the train, it's the next best thing to being there.
