railroad photos? Then you don’t want to
miss the big, photo-filled 2nd Quarter issue of Central Headlight, the
Society’s quarterly print magazine.
Here’s what’s included:
• Fifteen beautiful color photos of NYC L-2d
2933. Following a ten-year restoration,
this classic NYC Mohawk will be unveiled at the Museum of Transportation near
St. Louis on May 20. If you can’t be
there, you’ll want to see these photos!
• Twenty rare photos illustrating the full
story of the 1957-1961 grade crossing elimination project at Pleasantville, New
York on Central’s Harlem Division.
• Twenty-six never-before published photos
taken by veteran NYC general manager and photographer par excellence Jeremy Taylor.
These steam-to-diesel transition-era photos, each printed half-page
size, cover the NYCS from Massachusetts to Illinois and are knowledgably
captioned by Mr. Taylor himself. If you
model the NYC, you need to study these photos to get it right.
• Four vintage photos illustrating NYC’s presence
at Shelby, Ohio, the location of Phil Hastings’ famous photo of “The Mohawk
that Refused to Abdicate.”
• Six color photos illustrating the on-going
restoration of NYC tavern-lounge car 41 in Cedar Park, Texas.
• The full story of a day in the life of a New
York Central track walker, as it was back in the 1940s.
• Two memorable tail-end color photos of
Michigan Central’s famous Twilight
Limited, paused in flight at Jackson, Michigan.
