The new Pechulius DVD Jersey Central Vol. 2 is now available. It covers the main from Jersey City to E'port and also touches on the Newark and Perth Amboy branches as well as a short look at the NY&LB. Much of it is Bill Burke's footage that he had on his own VHS video from 1992 or 1993. It has been cleaned up and looks great. In fact the narrator uses some of Burke's dialogue throughout the video.The narrator's name slips my mind but it is not Big Mike Bednar this time. Thank goodness Mr. Pechulius has taken on the task of producing these DVDs . They are an important part in telling the history of the northeastern railroads. Can't wait for Volume 3 and perhaps other CNJ DVDs in the future.
Just got volume 3 yesterday. Lot of Bill Burke and Tom Nemeth footage that has been used previously. There are many new shots, particularly the original station still standing in North Branch and Phillipsburg shots I have not seen. Very good and hope someday they come out with Vol. 4.
