There seems to be a fair amount of videos available covering 1980s era Conrail in eastern Pa. and southern NY state, but this one is among the best, perhaps THE best of them. This is an excellent look at lots of Conrail freights in the pre-widenosed GE/EMD era. The power looks great in bright blue paint, and though EMD SD40's and the like dominate, there is also lots of GE power, including plenty of the older "U" series units. Locations for filming are photogenic and "railroady" with lots of nice lineside props; signals, industry etc.

Charles Smiley Video productions are consistently excellent, and Northeast Rails Remembered is no exception. As someone who actually lives in the Northeast and has also been an avid railfan for more than 50 years, I can attest to the essential correctness of Mr. Smiley's narrative, always an essential part of his video productions. In fact, his personal narration is what sets his efforts apart, and above in most cases, the rest.

Another typical masterpiece from Charles Smiley. Great videography and updating with digital technology. Well worth the price and hopefully there will be more on this often neglected era and railroad!

Conrail fans will love this video. History is preserved here in a good overall production dating to the late 1980's.
