Review of Vignettes of the Erie Lackawanna Volume 2 Marion OH 70-76 DVD

Vignettes of the ERIE LACKAWANNA - Volume 2 picks up where volume 1 left off...and covers the years 1970 to 1976. Beginning with a brief view of the Erie Railroad in the Marion, Ohio area, Volume 2 features EL, Penn Central, Chessie System and Norfolk and Western action at AC Tower, a look at the Marion Humpyard, the inaugurak run of Bi-Centennial unit 3638, a trip down the Dayton Branch, and east of Marion to Galion and Mansfield. Highlighted in this program are the changes which took place during the 1970s as well as the varied locomotive lash-ups the EL was famous for! Freight car fans take note...many scenes also feature freight cars...including an entire train! Rare for this era! 60 minutes, color and sound, DVD-R format.
