CONRAIL RAINBOW YEARS - VOL 1/Herbert-Povall

Default Title: $39.95 USD

IN STOCK AND SHIPPING

The first in a series of titles covering Conrail’s first four years of operations (1976-1979), this book features the photographic handiwork of the late Richard (Dick) Herbert, with some additional photos added from the collection of his good friend George Povall. The book covers Conrail’s “Rainbow Years,” when motive power in a variety of patched-out color schemes from its six predecessor railroads operated across the new Conrail system. A smattering of freshly painted Conrail blue locomotives, as well as other railroads’ locomotives that were leased to alleviate power shortages, added to the color palette. This book features over 140 full-color images of Conrail’s Rainbow Years from across the northeastern United States.
