A modeler's treasure trove of NYC rolling stock information with expert commentary.
This is the first all color effort devoted to the
rolling equipment of the New York Central after World War II as color film
became available. The NYC evokes
thoughts of the Great Steel [Passenger]
Fleet, thundering freights in red and grey, work-a-day trains in boxcar red
and black, and the snappy Century (”Jade”) green NYC’s last decade. This book stops the action and illustrates in
color the individual pieces of equipment that made up the Central’s roster. The photos are drawn from diverse collections,
in fact, many were shot “off line”.
Modelers will not only see the colors, but weathering patterns. Historians will appreciate the fleet’s depth,
the Central’s many traffic patterns, and the book’s expert commentary.
