Review of Northeast Rails Remembered - Conrail NYS&W D&H

 4 of 5 (4)
Brought back from 1988 and 1989 is the Conrail story with material never before released.

Conrail's former Reading line, Allentown, Reading and numerous scenic places through many small towns and splendid countryside. The scenic Southern Tier on the former Erie mainline brings lots of action with Conrail, NYS&W and Delaware & Hudson trains - and more!

See some scenes from the early 1970s with a struggling Penn Central and its collection of old and eclectic diesels.

Learn the Conrail story that saved the rail industry by merging many failed roads into a first-class operation.

Conrail was split up into parts of the NS and the CSX system in 1999. We bring it back to your screen!

See a great variety of diesel power and freight cars before the graffiti era. The 1988-era was at the point in time when Conrail had transformed itself into a successful railroad.

This material was shot over a two year period of time, in all seasons. It was shot by videogr
