On the cover: Standing tall at the age of 87 before the tall tower of Buffalo’s Central Terminal that is just a few years younger, retired New York Central engineer Charles A. Erler holds the builder’s plate of J-1b Hudson 5201, an engine that he fired several times. The story of Charlie’s great career as a railroad man begins on page 6. (Photo by Fred B. Furminger)
