Railroad History in Fulton

(#603) from Kentucky Life Program 603 (2000)

Host Dave Shuffett talks with retired railroad workers about the days when Fulton, in Kentucky’s extreme western tip, was a freight shipping hub. For several decades starting in the 1920s, most of the bananas distributed in the U.S. came to Fulton to be re-iced after making the trip up from the Gulf of Mexico.

Trouble with video in Firefox:

This is a known issue with the Window Media Video format.

Windows Media plugin is no longer maintained in Firefox, causing it to stop working.

Solution: Change the Firefox configuration file.
  1. Open a new tab or window.
    In the "Location/URL" bar, type "about:config" and press Enter.
    (The about:config "This might void your warranty!" warning page will appear. Click I'll be careful, I promise!, to continue to the about:config page.)
  2. In the "about:config" page search bar, enter:
    "plugins.load_appdir_plugins"
  3. Double click the preference name to change the "value" to true.
  4. Close and restart Firefox. The video should now work once you reopen the page.
    If not, then the WMV plugin may not be installed.
