I found this vintage Plymouth commercial on the youtube website. I could not believe what I saw. 1969 Plymouths on a PennCentral autorack train. Even saw a Penn Central Caboose! I wonder how much Penn Central made on this ad.

Here it is.....high speed internet would be best though.

The video begins on a hilltop south of Kingston, NY, then pans down to show the engines emerging from Kingston tunnel. The next image is of the train on Wilbur Bridge over the Espus. It ends near Storm King Mountain along the Hudson. A great look at the old west shore.
