Review of Conrail Finale - Selkirk to State Line DVD

In 1999 the railroad known as Conrail will cease to exist. New operator CSXT will have a system of thousands of route miles connecting hundred of cities and towns. Of all this track, there will be plenty of segments favored by the railfan community because of their traffic levels, scenery or other notable features. The program brings you to such a spot on the old Boston & Albany. This 30 mile segment of track isn't as publicized as the Berkshires, or Palmer,Massachusetts, but the scenery of Eastern New York State, combined with a busy main like offering a roller coaster terrain, with four talking defect detectors, lots of great photo locations, and train chasing capabilities, make this area well worth a detailed visit. Join us as we explore this exciting segment of railroad from Selkirk Rail Yard to the giant Alfred H. Smith Bridge spanning the Hudson River, to the State Line Tunnel with plenty of great spots in between!
