François Hausemer, director, oversaw the digital project to the finish and helped edit 80 hours of shots to four hours spread over 32 films.

The exhibition is segmented under three main aspects of CFL, namely the company, freight and network, and portrays engaging personal accounts of the the CFL railway workers and includes both videos and still photos..
