  1. Why does the February 10, 2017 posting on Engine 2933, an L-2 Mohawk, include a photograph of an L-3 Mohawk, the first of which was built 11 years later than the 2933? Also, I believe that the NYC acquired a total of exactly 600 engines of the 4-8-2 wheel arrangement, from 1916 through 1944.

  2. But the posting is about Engine 2933, an L-2 Mohawk and the engine in the photograph is an L-3 Mohawk! Wouldn’t it have been easy to substitute a photograph of Engine 2933 for that of the newer engine? We should not be in the business of publishing erroneous information about our railroad’s locomotives.

    I live in St. Louis and visited the Museum of Transportation today. A lovely trip and 2933 was sat out in the sun, looking resplendent in her fresh coat of paint. I took a few photographs; if the NYCHS would like to have copies of them, you would be more than welcome to use or publish them as you see fit. Just have the web-master contact me using the hidden email address in the reply or post a reply here with an email address to send them to.

    Will someone please beg the St. Louis Museum to put a decent NYC pilot on this engine? They had both styles……. but Dual service engines had decent pilots……….

    I recently saw for sale a sign. The owner says it’s from the Mich Cent as that is the line that ran through town. It is about 21″ tall, made of steel, and has j 61 on it in a vertical format.I don’t believe it is from a signal. Does anyone know what this sign means?
