Looking for film footage of the Colonie Shops

Post by greenwichlirr » Sat Jul 04, 2015 10:43 am

Hi Gang, I'm helping to produce a piece for Time Warner Cable news (Former YNN-Albany) to run in our Albany market about the Colonie Shops). I'm trying to track down some footage of the shops themselves. The piece would be short (only about 3 mins) and therefor we wouldn't probably end up using more than a minute or two of vintage shots, but views seem to be elusive--odd, too, since the railroad was so 'buff friendly' back in the day.

If anyone can help me on the issue, then you can PM me here or email me at ordway1440@aol.com

Thanks ahead of time!

Bouncing this up. Still looking and I am actually quite surprised at the lack of available materials, considering the wide-open phtography policy back in 'the day'.
