3rd Quarter 2014 Central Headlight is in the mail.

3rd Quarter 2014 Central Headlight is in the mail today.

Cover3rd2014Headlight

Readers of Central Headlight have been asking for more color, and with this issue they will have it.  Color was provided on 29 of the issue’s 40 pages, resulting in three major features in full color:  a review of New York Central’s Operating Management Training Program, a discussion of the NYC passenger cars that were sold to Ringling Brothers, Barnum & Bailey Circus, and an up-close look at a magnificent live-steam model of S-1b Niagara 6019.  Readers will also enjoy a photo story about an avalanche of coal that blocked all four tracks of Central’s busy main line at Fonda, New York in 1947.  Other articles recall the operation of Train No. 43, recall an event during the infamous coal strike of 1950, and take a close look at NYC’s Lot 858-B boxcars.  Finally, for laughs, there’s the story of a cat who hopped a freight on the Auburn & Rochester Railroad way back in 1848 – with an unintended consequence!

As a reminder, those who have added the digital subscription to their membership renewal will have this issue in their computer today.  For only $15 extra per year you can also have your copy digitally sent to you on the day the printed copy goes in the mail.  With this option you have the ability to read the issue ahead of most members and still have the printed copy a few days later.  Many members have taken advantage of this and have given us very favorable feedback on the option.  You might think about adding this option to your membership when you renew for 2015 this fall.
