Review of Rubber City Rails Volume 2 Colorful Early CSX DVD

• CSX/CHESSIE: The early CSX years just after 1986 to 1990 brought an unprecedented array of colors to the Akron scene: B&O and C&O blue, WM red & white, CHESSIE yellow, SEABOARD SYSTEM/FAMILY LINES grey, plus GEORGIA, L&N and more. Mix in the visitors - D&H, SUSQUEHANNA, DETROIT EDISON and more, and train was indeed exciting. Witness the best of these changing times, in all seasons of the year, on the grade and high speed running. This major segment runs nearly one hour!
• CONRAIL & AMTRAK: CR at Akron, Hudson, Ravenna, and late night Amtrak and Conrail action in the snow at Canton.
• NORFOLK - SOUTHERN/W&LE: See the changing, of the guard as W&LE took over in 1990. Akron trestles are featured, along with yard action.
• AKRON AND BARBERTON BELT: A near stall on Goodyear Bridge is part of our cab ride through Akron along tracks which are now gone. Crossing Exchange Street is an adventure!
• CUYAHOGA VALLEY LINE: Mikado 4070 and ex-BN RS-2 are both seen in oper
