4th Qtr. 2015 Central Headlight in the Mail!!

The 4th Qtr. 2015 Central Headlight is here.

Pages from 2015Q4


A big, 48-page Fourth Quarter 2015 issue of Central Headlight has been mailed to all members in good standing on Tuesday, November 10.   It is an issue not to be missed.

The lead article pays tribute to New York Central’s L-2d Mohawk 2933, one of the only two modern NYC steam locomotives to survive the torch, and the only modern steam locomotive ever donated anywhere by the NYCS. It tells the true story of how this locomotive came to be saved, and discusses the full cosmetic restoration currently ongoing at the Museum of Transportation near St. Louis.

Next comes a thorough discussion of the purpose, facilities, and operation of the Robert R. Young Yard, New York Central’s huge classification yard at Elkhart, Indiana. A four-page pull-out centerfold reproduces in full size the detailed plan of the yard prepared by the Signal Department of the NYCS in September 1957. Detailed information about arrivals and departures on a typical day in 1964 is provided.

The third major feature is another wonderful photo essay by NYCS veteran Jeremy Taylor. Jerry’s first photo essay, published in Central Headlight just one year ago, was widely acclaimed, and this second essay is its equal.   Twenty-two outstanding photos, each captioned by Jerry himself, transport readers across the transition-era New York Central System from eastern Massachusetts to western Indiana.
