This title is a division-by-division tour of Conrail from New York to Chicago along the former lines that became the northeastern giant.

Along with volume 1, this is the second in a series of titles covering Conrail's first years of operations (1976-1980), this book features slides from GPCo's own vast collection, and represents the "best of the best" in early Conrail photography.

The book covers Conrail's "Rainbow Years," when motive power in a variety of patched-out color schemes from its six predecessor railroads operated across the new Conrail system. A smattering of freshly painted Conrail blue locomotives, as well as other railroads' locomotives that were leased to alleviate power shortages, added to the color palette.

There are over 140 full-color images of Conrail's unique Rainbow Years.

Softcover, 88 pages, standard portrait size, Color photographs with captions.
