The last Conrail radio transmissions heard at Conway Yard, PA

Midnight, May 31, 1999, Conrail’s last day

Transcript:

Right before midnight someone in yard says: "Conrail is officially extinct. Goodbye Conrail." Someone says: "That's a 10-4 roger." Youngstown Line Dispatcher says: "Good axle count. uh, this will be your final Conrail Youngstown Line Out." A second later, at midnight, the Youngstown Line Dispatcher uses his new call: "NS Youngstown Line out..." And that was that. NS had taken over and it was the end of my favorite railroad. Tears come to my eyes every time I hear this.
