2nd Qtr. 2017 Central Headlight Mailing Soon


Photo-filled 2nd Quarter Central Headlight Will

Mail on May 10

Like railroad photos? Then you don’t want to miss the big, photo-filled 2nd Quarter issue of Central Headlight, the Society’s quarterly print magazine. Here’s what’s included:

  • Fifteen beautiful color photos of NYC L-2d 2933. Following a ten-year restoration, this classic NYC Mohawk will be unveiled at the Museum of Transportation near St. Louis on May 20. If you can’t be there, you’ll want to see these photos!
  • Twenty rare photos illustrating the full story of the 1957-1961 grade crossing elimination project at Pleasantville, New York on Central’s Harlem Division.
  • Twenty-six never-before published photos taken by veteran NYC general manager and photographer par excellence Jeremy Taylor. These steam-to-diesel transition-era photos, each printed half-page size, cover the NYCS from Massachusetts to Illinois and are knowledgably captioned by Mr. Taylor himself. If you model the NYC, you need to study these photos to get it right.
  • Four vintage photos illustrating NYC’s presence at Shelby, Ohio, the location of Phil Hastings’ famous photo of “The Mohawk that Refused to Abdicate.”
  • Six color photos illustrating the on-going restoration of NYC tavern-lounge car 41 in Cedar Park, Texas.
  • The full story of a day in the life of a New York Central track walker, as it was back in the 1940s.
  • Two memorable tail-end color photos of Michigan Central’s famous Twilight Limited, paused in flight at Jackson, Michigan.

This exciting issue is now being printed, and will mail to all members on May 10. If you are not a member, sign up NOW, and we will send you not only this photo-filled issue, but also our first-quarter issue, mailed to members in February. But do it TODAY to be on the mailing list!
