Another great release in the fallen-flag series with the Bednar boys. As with past releases, I continue to be amazed at the re-mastered quality of this vintage footage. And as with all "Railfanning with the Bednars" releases, "Big Mike" Bednar's narration adds an incredible amount to the viewers experience, with his detailed description of the often painful transition of Conrail in the early 1980's, featuring deferred maintenance of track and equipment, and it's impact on employee morale. Plenty of D&H, Lehigh Valley, and Reading engines, and fantastic "graffiti-free" rolling stock! If you enjoy high-quality footage of fallen flags, you'll really enjoy this one.

Perhaps the series sub-title should read-the continuing adventures...the boys are showing trains, locations and people they are familiar with, so the locations are not new. What this volume shows is the deterioration of the subject railroads. You can almost feel the sadness in "Big Mike's" narration. It's clear that Mike is no fan of today's NS, or certain styles of caboose! In watching Mike in the engine cab, I still marvel that he could get through the cab door!
