Hope springs eternal as the snowbanks melt every spring. There was not much hope on the Penn Central, deeply mired in a bottom-less financial quagmire in the spring of 1973. Nobody knew at the time, but the then five year old railroad was at the mid-point in its bankruptcy... it had failed financially on June 21, 1970...on April 1,1976, it would be absorbed into Conrail.
Meanwhile, the railroad and its employees and officials were making the best of the situation...continuing as usual, despite adversity, to provide service across its sprawling system. Emery Gulash was trackside with his movie cameras, recording the pulsating P C rail action during another difficult year.
