Review of Conrails Boston & Albany - Through a Trainmans Eyes - A & R Productions

Gary Gurske often took his video camera to work as a trainman for Conrail's Boston line. As a member of the Worcester crew pool, he was called for trains from Guilford"s Ayer yard to Selkirk and return. These are his memories as represented by train SEMA in 1990. The program covers Selkirk Yard, the Selkirk branch and the Boston and Albany between Post Road and Worcester. Also featured is the Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus blue unit train. The train is heading west and stops at Springfield Station to feed and water the animals.
