The latest issue of the Central Headlight is in the mail and on its way to current NYCSHS members!
On the cover is a photo of Pittsburgh & Lake Erie K-6a 9249 leading Train #10, getting ready to depart Beaver Falls/New Brighton (PA) eastbound on June 23, 1946.
The lead story for the 3rd Quarter 2009 issue will be a tribute to John W. Barriger III, president of the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie from 1956 to 1964. The issue will also include articles about the Catskill Mountain Branch (of which three operators provide tourist train service in the present day), the last move of the 999 over NYC rails, and the Ohio Blizzard of 1950. Two classic Howard Fogg P&LE postcards grace the rear cover.
The 4th Quarter issue, which should be out in early January, will include articles about NYC's U25B U-boats, the construction of the first T-motor, and kit-bashing an HO Canada Southern caboose.
