The Lindbergh Special
Step back in time to 1927, when Charles Lindbergh accomplishes a “modern miracle” by crossing the Atlantic Ocean by airplane in his renowned, non-stop solo flight. Earning him the “Distinguished Flying Cross” award from President Calvin Coolidge, the aviator’s daring feat was an important historical event that stirred the adventurous hearts and imaginations of millions. Many news agencies and movie companies captured the exciting event on film, and all of them clamored to be the first to play their valuable newsreel films in New York City’s theatres. Nearly all of the undeveloped footage was rushed by airplane to New York City, except for one … The International News Reel Company was convinced that the 225-mile journey to New York City could be reached faster by train rather than by plane. They transported Lindbergh footage on a two-car passenger train led by Pennsylvania steam locomotive #460, fittingly an Atlantic-type 4-4-2 engine.

Purportedly hitting speeds of 115 miles per hour, the “Lindbergh Special” reached its destination in a record-setting time of only 187 minutes. And amazingly, the development of the film was completed before the train reached NYC, thanks to a full staff of technicians and editors working quickly in a darkroom built inside the baggage car! Within 15 minutes after arrival, the footage was being played in theaters – beating all those that traveled by plane by at least an hour.
