Description


Conrail had a major presence in Michigan, in particular in the southeastern part of the State including Detroit. This book chronicles Conrail in Michigan from its beginnings in 1976 (including some Penn Central coverage beforehand), through the transition of creating one railroad out of six bankrupt ones, to its coming of age and ending when it was purchased by two other railroads in 1999. Also covered are trips to Toledo, Ohio in the late 1970's and to Canada to see Conrail's operations out of St. Thomas and Windsor, Ontario. Color and black and white photographs from the author's collection of roster and action shots of Conrail locomotives and trains are used.
