RARE Old Main Film

Post by CNJ Fan 4evr »

Just picked up a DVD by Waler Berko called Vintage Eastern Rails 1960s. It is a GREAT video with footage many probably haven't seen before. On one section there is a fan trip over the DL&W Old Main to East Stroudsburg and then back over the cutoff. There are shots of both Oxford and Manunka Chunk tunnels as well as the Oxford Furnace station. There is also some great CNJ footage including the Feb. 1972 fan trip pulled by Reading 2102.I bought mine form the Reading Historical Society. Always good to give to orginizations that preserve the history of our beloved fallen flags.
