The great Pennsylvania Railroad dominated its namesake state. After the Penn Central debachle, the Federal Government assumed control of most of the eastern railroads. The Consolidated Rail Corporation, Conrail, was set up to operate these lines. Conrail handled the transition well, particularly in the Keystone State. This program covers the mainline from Altoona, the heart of the Pennsy, the "Brickyard", Horseshoe Curve, Gallitzin and Cresson. We also catch some action at Enola Yard. Running time 1:58, Narration, and maps. Copyright 2011 by A&R Systems, Inc.

Being a Conrail follower, this is not a bad video, but not a great one. Seems to be largely composed of amateur videos, but quality is not bad. I would like to have seen dates on the videos to get an idea of when exactly the shots were taken (a pet peeve of mine). Considering the era, and the availability of finer grade video equipment at that time, I am satisfied with this piece of history. Thanks for bringing this out!

Additional remarks by trainmanjeff:
Narration: Could have used more.
Would kids enjoy this? Maybe.
Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
DVD Value: Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
Recommend to others? Yes.
