With the fall of the major anthracite roads and their inclusion into Conrail in 1976, railfans began to focus their attention on capturing the operations of the Delaware & Hudson, as many believed the D&H’s future as an independent company was becoming increasingly uncertain. The events that followed the acquisition of the D&H by Guilford Transportation just a few years after these films were taken would result in the demise of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad as many once knew it.

In Volume 1, we railfan the Delaware & Hudson on the Susquehanna and Penn divisions and on the Conrail Southern Tier Line from March 1979 to October 1981. Locations include Binghamton to Mechanicville Yard on the Susquehanna division, Nineveh to Ararat including footage of detours over Jefferson Junction at Lanesboro on the Penn division and Binghamton to as far west as Portage on the Southern Tier Line. Highlights include interchange with the Boston & Maine at Mechanicville Yard, Starrucca Viaduct; Starrucca Creek Trestle, Harpursville trestle and more.

  1. Andrew Weise

    Excellent production, you here comments from both the narrator and camera man as you follow a group of railfans around the D&H. They visit interlocking towers, yards and locomotive shops in addition to very nice mainline action. You a variety of power including a very mixed fleet of Alco, GE, and EMD. Run through power from N&W and various paint schemes of the D&H are certainly a highlight. Good video quality and sound. I would also point out that the video focuses on interesting situations as they unfold. I would defiantly recommend this video to any railfan.
