  • Conrail The Final Years 1992-1997 (Withers)

Includes Conrail SD70s and SD70MAC's. Focused. If one word describes Conrail during its last five years of existence as an independent railroad, it is probably that one. After years of sorting out and blending the priorities and assets of its bankrupt predecessors and later overhauling and streamlining the system in an attempt to make itself profitable, Conrail became a credible common carrier during the late 1980s. How did this emphasis on profitability affect Conrail's locomotive fleet' The fleet has become one of the youngest in the industry, and the aggregate horsepower of the fleet has risen substantially. With the continued system rationalization and the shedding of yards, secondary and branch-line operations, Models typically assigned to yard switching, transfer work, local service and hump pushers were thinned out. In more than 600 photographs-action views and roster portraits-this book offers an exhaustive pictorial documentation of all 37 classes of locomotives that Conrail operated during its final 5 years of existence. Includes a colour photo section. 1997 Withers Publishing. Hardback with dw. VG. 208pp. OAE-W2E-B63
