2022 NYCSHS Calendar

Screen Shot 2021-07-31 at 6.16.50 PM

The NYCSHS 2022 Calendar is now available with eleven color and three black & white photographs.

With our New York Central calendar for 2022, we’ve done more than to provide you with the days of the week, some historical dates, and some nice train pictures. We want to take you on a trip around the vast New York Central System with stunning photos that are evocative of the seasons. In February, you’ll sympathize with a South Bend operator as he hoops up orders to The Chicagoan in bitterly cold South Bend, Indiana; and in April you’ll see a conductor and rear brakeman conversing while their local freight pauses in still-chilly Hudson, Michigan. In July you’ll feel the heat of The Bronx as a P-motor wheels a two-car Empire Service train past what is left of Mott Haven; and in December you’ll be glad to be warm at home when you observe a classic Hudson departing nearly snowed-in Buffalo Central Terminal. Our calendar will also take you inside Harmon’s roundhouse as two Century-styled Hudsons are prepared for another westward voyage. And our two covers will help you to recollect the final years of the Age of Steam. All this from fine, high-resolution photos carefully selected from hundreds of candidates.

Price is still $16.00.

Free shipping on US and Canadian orders, and Ohio residents pay 8% Ohio Sales Tax

Dining A La Pullman – The History of Pullman

Dining Service, 1866 – 1968

Screen Shot 2021-07-30 at 9.30.27 AM

Following up on his successful sleeping “hotel” cars of the 1860s, George Pullman invented the first railroad dining car, starting a century-long tradition of the Pullman Company providing its passengers with restaurant-quality meals on rails. This is the first telling of the story of Pullman’s dining service, with colorful menus, tasteful china and silver, popular recipes, and extensive interviews with retired Pullman chefs and waiters who served opera singers, actors, businessmen, and even the President of the United States. Authors Mulligan, Tilp, and Zimmermann explore the history, equipment, food, and people that made this unique era of travel possible. Tilp also covers the story of his company’s 1968 purchase of the Pullman restaurant-sleeper Lotos Club and the subsequent restoration and operation of what remains the most authentically restored Pullman car in the United States. Recipes for numerous classic Pullman meals and a selection of complete, historic Pullman menus round out this definitive volume on Pullman’s culinary legacy.

NYCSHS Announces NYCS Layout Tours on YouTube

Screen Shot 2021-07-06 at 10.53.04 AM

The NYCSHS proudly presents the first in a series of layout tours featuring the modeling skills of NYCSHS members recreating the New York Central System in miniature. NYCS modeling is one of the ways that we can honor the memory of the New York Central over 50 years after it ceased to exist.  Our membership consists of many retired NYCS employees, people who rode or watched the railroad in its glory days and more and more by those too young to have even seen it when it ran. 

Our members model in every scale and in many ways, but many recreate portions of the railroad as it existed by realistically modeling a certain section of it and at specific time period. Rich Stoving has done this for a portion of the Hudson Division in the 1940s.
