Please read: Effective March 1 2023, we will raise our shipping charges. We have absorbed several postal increases during the past couple years and it is time to make a change. There will not be much change for those ordering on-line as the web calculates shipping charges based on weight, distance, and class of mail service.


For mail and phone orders, charges are based on the number of items ordered, not weight. Charges for single-item orders will increase from $6 to $7. Additional items will be charged at $2 per item. For example, if you order a single DVD, the charge will be $7. If you order two, it will be $9. This will also give us the opportunity to send more items via priority mail. (Last year, all multiple 2023 calendar mail orders were sent priority mail, greatly reducing shipping time and mis-handling.)


We have received back from dealers six (6) 2023 Rio Grande calendars. They are available only for on-line orders, one to a customer. 


Default Title: $39.95 USD


The third in a series of titles covering Conrail’s first years of operations (1976-1982), this book features more of the finest in early Conrail photography. The book covers Conrail’s “Rainbow Years” during contracted commuter operations in New Jersey, when motive power in a variety of patched-out color schemes from NJDOT and predecessor railroads operated along the Raritan Valley and North Jersey Coast Lines. A smattering of freshly painted NJDOT locomotives, as well as other railroads’ locomotives that were purchased to alleviate power shortages, added to the color palette. This book features over 140 full-color images of Conrail’s unique Rainbow Years.
