The 2nd Quarter (May) issue of Central Headlight has been mailed to all members on Monday, April 30. The lead article is a discussion of the major track relocation in Tonawanda and North Tonawanda, New York on NYC’s Niagara Branch, completed in 1922. The centerpiece of the relocation was a bascule bridge over Tonawanda Creek, and the cover depicts an Amtrak Empire Service train crossing the bridge in 1989. Other major features include a discussion of Central’s Flexi-Flow Program, and an article on New York Central’s barges, including a roster of nearly 400 NYC barges.
