Note: Cover image may differ from actual product

Join the Bednars in Volume 2 as they railfan the northeastern fallen flags and other facilities between the years 1969 thru 1971.

Locations include eastern NJ to southern NY, western PA for PC action, southeastern PA on the Reading and Vermont to visit Steamtown.

The Bednar film collection focuses primarily on the Lehigh Valley Railroad as that was the railroad the Bednars were employed with, but since railroads like the CNJ, Reading, LHR, D&H and LNE shared many of the same facilities, they are also featured throughout the collection.

Digitized from super 8mm film
Color: approximately 68 minutes total run time with background music and synchronized sounds.

This was my 7th dvd purchase in the "Bednars" series. As with the others, if you're an eastern U.S. fallen-flag fan, you will enjoy this one. What I particularly liked in Vol. 2 was abundance of footage showing 6-axle CNJ EMD units, along with the usual Leigh Valley (lot's of C628's), D&H, and Reading. As always, for me, seeing lot's of older graffiti-free rolling stock, was an added plus. The videography was not quite as good as in the later disc's, but was still very acceptable. The major disappointment for me was the lack of the always-informative and entertaining narration by "Big Mike". I really missed it, and after a short period of time, found myself muting the banjo background music, which became annoying. Overall though, still a nice addition to my collection.

Additional remarks by Curt:
Narration: There was no narration.

Image quality: A little rough around the edges.
