Alan Page's CR: 5-1977 to 4-1978 - Page 5

This album features year two of Conrail operations.

Expanding west from Morrisville and Abrams, areas covered include Enola, Altoona, Conway, Mingo Junction, and Weirton, WV, and east to South Amboy and Elizabethport, NJ.  

Following massive retirements of Alco’s, Baldwin’s, and EMD cab units, Conrail leased units from BAR, CNW, SP, and CN to make up for the power shortages.
