In Volume 5 of Railfanning with the Bednars, we’ll look at the last 10 months of operation before Conrail. Deteriorated facilities, uncertainty and turmoil made for some of the darkest days on the railroads. Derailments and other issues were common place. But even with these challenges, operations continued as usual.
But before we look at the last 10 months, we’ll take a brief look back at found footage taken between 1973 and 1975, including footage of the wreck at Parryville. Locations from Allentown to Sayre are featured as well as wrecks in Allentown and Lockport.
