Review of Whistlers Western II - Penn Central Black - A & R Productions

Our best selling program has been "Whistler's Western- The Boston & Albany Railroad". Now we can bring to you a sequel, visiting the "Western" in the days of the PC. Many jokes have been made about the PC, but it carried heavy freight moving over the Berkshires despite many obstacles, political and otherwise. Bruce Malone has worked with us to produce his Dad's film from the '70's through early Conrail, from North Grafton through New York State. Second generation power attempts to maintain schedule despite adversity. We think there is a sentimental attachment to that simple black paint with white squiggle and the heroic efforts of the railroaders getting the job done.
