Review of Conrails Kaleidoscope Years Vol 2 DVD Upstate New York Lehigh Valley Horseshoe Curve

Conrail's Kaleidoscope Years is a series covering the first few years of operations featuring a wide variety of motive power color schemes inherited from the former Anthracite Roads, as well as leased foreign power.
