Conrail Atlantic Region In Color Volume 1: 1976-1978

Hey All,

I just wanted to point out that Morning Sun Books just released this title written by Art Erdman. I have read
about a quarter of this book already and it's loaded with many good shots, but to me the best parts are the
great anecdotes about his life working in the offices during the craziness that plagued early Conrail's early days.

For those of you interested, I think it's definitely worth the money to purchase this. ;-)

I ordered my copy last week and it should arrive any day now. I worked for Conrail from 1978 to 1983 first as a towerman and later as a ticket agent. Those were interesting times and I have many good memories.
