Review of Railfanning with the Bednars Volume 17 Conrail D&H 1987-1988 DVD

In volume 17 of Railfanning with the Bednars, we continue with found footage from the Bednar collection from May to August 1987 and from June to September of 1988.

We pick up where we left off in volume 16 at Steel, then view the Conrail and D&H action around Allentown and surrounding areas, including the Conrail OCS train and more.

We'll witness the day the D&H went into bankruptcy under Guilford, and the subsequent startup of operations under the newly designated operator, the New York, Susquehanna and Western.

As usual, Big Mike provides the commentary.

Narrated with commentary by Mike Bednar
