Default 1948 Cab Ride O&W

When you have about 20 minutes take a look at two interesting 1948 films from the head end of a passenger train on the New York Ontario & Western RR. Leaving Weehawken, the train runs up the West Shore Division of the NYC to Cornwall, where it diverged onto NYO&W trackage. The network that was in place at that time is amazing.

Is there information anywhere on what kind of loco (or locos) these were shot from?

The first six minutes are all around where I grew up. That's some of the most amazing footage ever for me.
