The area surrounding Allentown and Bethlehem was quickly transformed as seven colorful legacy rail lines came under Conrail control in 1976. Over the next 24 years, this industrial region of eastern Pennsylvania would go through its own transformation, affecting traffic patterns for years to come. Historian and photographer Olev Taremae explores these changes through colorful photographs and detailed text.
