C&O’s “The Golden Link” (C&O’s Carferry Promo Film)

From The Unofficial Carferry Youtube Channel

This was a promotional film for the C&O railway’s carferry operation based out of Ludington, Michigan. This film was made in 1960 during the peak or golden era of the carferries on Lake Michigan. During this era, 6 carferries were running in and out of Ludington. Today, only the Badger remains in service. However, it no longer carries rail cars, but carries leisure passengers and automobiles. You can ride the Badger from May to October. The Badger runs between Ludington and Manitowoc, Wisconsin
