Virginia (1941) 1941 ClassicReels.com; A full length feature motion picture; Shot in Technicolor, but only B&W available now. 108 minutes, $10.00 + shipping. I'm always looking for a 35mm FILM copy of this from theatre use - if you know of where one can be found, please write peters.robert@comcast.net http://classicreels.com/product_info.php?products_id=46 Starring Fred MacMurray and Madeleine Carroll, this film is noted for using the N&A train (# 9 as shown on side of cab in movie though 2-4-2T #11 had lettering for the railway like shown in movie as noted in photos made later in 1941 - #11 has a bell up top and the movie star did not) in the opening scenes with my grandparents (Samuel & Laura Peters) as extras on the station platform about 3 minutes into the film. Opening filmed at Howardsville with the station name changed to Fairville. Photo taken while filming with station as Fairville in Image Repository. Also take note of the likely boxcar with no door and a crated soapstone something inside and 2 2x4's across the doorway. Likely combine was C&O 409 but will await some additional verification for that. 
Virginia (1941) Film Clip Only 1941 Film-quality clip now available from http://www.universalclips.com/ for a rather expensive $1500 per 15 seconds of film. (elements on Nelson & Albemarle Railway run between 02:12 and 03:34 time in the running of the film). http://www.universalclips.com/PropertyDetails.aspx?propertyID=12497 $10,400 US and while obviously of film-quality, unaffordable for our not-for-profit effort here. We'd likely spend it restoring #2 to display quality rather than have the film if we could afford either! Contact at NBC Universal Clips is Roni Lubliner who can be reached at 818-777-1273 or roni.lubliner@nbcuni.com

Don't let me shortchange you on this video. August Thieme did the photography and a grand job he did accomplish.
