Conrail’s Selkirk Yard: A Visitor’s Guide
Thanks to significant federal investment and other assistance, Conrail was able to rebuild its insolvent railroads and re-equip itself with new equipment. This brochure from Selkirk Yard shows a modern, efficient operation that reflects significant investment in technology and physical property. Items like this were given to visitors, many of whom were prospective customers, to show that the railroad was back on its feet and able to meet their needs.
