Review of Conrails Beginning A Look at the Eastern Half DVD

The merger of six bankrupt railroads into the Consolidated Rail Corporation on April 1, 1976 was destined to change the face of railroading in the Northeast forever. During May of 1976, Paul Geiger set out to record the first days of the New Giant, and to film what remained of the Erie Lackawanna, Lehigh Valley, Reading, Lehigh and Hudson River, Central New Jersey, and Penn Central. Conrails Beginning... follows Pauls journey, visiting each of the componet roads at locations including Buffalo, Sayre, Elmira, Binghamton, Newark, Elizabethport, Reading, Harrisburg, Altoona, and more! So join us, as we explore the beginning of THE major carrier in the Northeast...the Company that bucked the odds and confounded the experts...the railroad that has come to be known as Big Blue. 100 minutes - Color with audio and narration. Conrails Beginning has been a consistently good seller since its introduction 15 years ago.
