NYC Through Passenger Service in Color -- Volume 2: Challenge and Retreat -- 1950 - 1967

During the early fifties, the Central faced auto and air challenges with full service streamlined trains with all the trimmings.  This book traces NYCís premier services, train by train, through the 1950ís and 60ís.  As time progressed, the Centralís attitude toward passenger services reversed, and the 60ís saw services cut-back and consolidated.


Photos include a few steam locomotives, many lightning-striped E-units and a few of the later white-striped E-units.  AlsoÖ many photographs of observation cars.  The equipment was clean and the trains were fast...
