Beginning in the summer of 1952, Emery Gulash began capturing prolific amounts of activity on this well known railroad. Back in 1952 Emery did not realize that in a few years the railroad would merge with the New York Central and be called the Penn Central. This DVD covers the time frame from 1952 to 1969.
