In volume 14 of Railfanning with the Bednars, we pick up where we left off in Volume 11, with the beginning of the video tape portion of the Bednar collection from mid-1986 to March of 1987.
During this time, Conrail began removing the Lehigh Valley mainline from Hokendauqua to the Lehigh Gap area, as it needed major rehabilitation and the rail would be welded and used elsewhere. It was also considered duplicate trackage and an expense Conrail would rather rid themselves of.
While traffic was increasing for Conrail, the D&H was now firmly under the grips of Guilford and traffic was down considerably. The combined D&H trains were running once a day to every other day and bankruptcy was just around the corner.
As usual, Big Mike provides the commentary.

|In your opinion, how was the narration level?
There was no narration.|
Could have used more.
A little too much.
Way too much.

|Aside from the content of the DVD, how would you rate the image quality (sharpness, camera steadiness, etc)?
A little rough around the edges.
|How would you rate the VALUE of this video?
Overpriced for the amount of enjoyment I got out of it.|
Seemed a little high, but not too bad.
|Last question. Would you recommend this DVD to others?
Not unless they REALLY were interested in the subject matter.
A "Must Have"!
