Central Headlight - 3Q 2010

The latest issue of the Central Headlight is in the mail and on its way to current NYCSHS members!

We know that the New York Central System was a huge railroad operation, but just how large compared to the other major carriers? Former New York Central marketing manager and NYCSHS Sustaining Member Carl Liba tells us the results of his extensive research. You'll also read about a 1946 fan trip over the Tonawanda Branch (the "Peanut" line), a fast 80-mph cab ride in an aging J-1 Hudson, an interesting meeting between an F-7 and a truckload of applesauce, and a followup to a report in the 2Q 2008 edition regarding a 1954 collision of an L-3a Mohawk. This, and other great stories, information and photographs await the reader in the next Central Headlight!
