Summary

Summary

In its 25-year history, Conrail became one of the most familiar lines in the annals of modern railroading, a freight line that connected most of the Northeast population centers and was renowned for its clean locomotive, tight schedules, and frequent heavy freight trains. This comprehensive and gorgeously illustrated history of Conrail will examine its motive power and rolling stock, its yards and terminals, and its most interesting routes, as well as its operations, much of which is gleaned from exclusive interviews with former Conrail employees. The photography is sourced from a variety of collections and archivists around the country. Following a brief look at the Pennsylvania, New Haven, New York Central, Lehigh Valley, Erie-Lackawanna, and other roads that ultimately formed Conrail, the book launches into chapters detailing the major aspects of Conrail operations.
