Review of Conrails Boston Line Selkirk to Charleton DVD

We have covered the Boston & Albany line in three prior programs. Whistler's Western Vol. 1 took us back to the steam era, while Vol. 2 covered the Penn Central era. Program CR-1 covered the line circa 1990 from the trainman's eye view. This program continues our coverage circa 1990 from the railfan's point of view. We start at Charlton Depot and work west through West Warren, West Springfield, Chester, Hinsdale, Pittsfield and on to Selkirk Yard. Running time 1:37, Maps and Narration.
