The find of a lifetime - old footage from Grimstad!

Forget Zapruder's film of the Kennedy assasination, forget the footage from the lunar landing - this little clip beats them all! It's a small film from the very last train leaving from Grimstad in 1961. This answers a lot of questions I've had about Grimstad station; the station building itself, colours and lots of other small small details that doesn't appear in any of the photos I have.

I managed to take this picture of a NSB Skd214 while it was busy doing some swithcing in Grimstad. Normally all the freight trains and switching is taken care of by GFB, so what this norwegian state railway engine is doing down here I haven't been able to find out.
