Review of Rubber City Rails Volume 3 Best of Akron DVD

• 1950s - 1980s: Some additional B&O steam sequences, plus rare b&w film from 1946 showing the Ringling Bros. Circus Train being switched by Pennsy steam at Derby Downs! Lots of vintage action at Kent and Ravenna, showing B&O, PRR, NYC, plus ERIE and NKP!!
• Watch the transition of time as several scenes from the 1970s and 1980s unfold.
• Take another ride on the Akron & Barberton Belt, this time on the former ERIE to Rittman and return to Barberton.
• See the BROADWAY LIMITED make it's debut in Akron!
• Watch X2000, the STEEL CITY EXPRESS with NKP Berkshire # 765 in C&O dress, and other specials.
• See the waning days of #4070, and go for a cab ride on the on the Valley Line's FPA-4.
• And more: CSX action, Conrail, Ohio Central, RJ Corman, Warther Museum, Orrville Depot, and other area attractions.
