Stockbridge

A single FL-9 powers a short passenger train southbound past the Stockbridge Station on the New Haven's Berkshire Line. It's the early 1960s and The FL-9s were relatively new and with their dual-powered configuration enabled trains to run directly into Manhatten's Grand Central Station. Passenger service is long gone on this segment of the Berkshire Line but The Berkshire Scenic Railway soon hopes to run scenic train service again through Stockbridge.

Plainfield Crossing

A pair of New Haven Railroad Alco RS 2 locomotives hammer across the diamond at Plainfield, CT with a merchandise train in the late 1950s. The painting was inspired by a scene in the 1959 movie It Happened to Jane starring Jack Lemon and Doris Day. In the movie, a steam locomotive ran out of coal and blocked the diamond at this location. Today the diamond is gone, but Plainfield is a very active location on the Providence and Worcester RR.

Train Time at Wayland

In December of 1952, Boston and Maine RS-3 no. 1540 pulls a short, late-afternoon train into the small town of Wayland, MA. Soon a handful of passengers will disembark. By the mid-1950s, the B&M replaced much of its passenger fleet with self-propelled Budd RDC railcars, and conventional locomotive-hauled passenger trains became obsolete. The last train to run through Wayland departed in 1971.

Northbound Merchandise

It's the early 1950s and an A-B-A set of Alcos led by FA-1 No. 1043 work their way north out of the New York Central's Baker Street Yard in Corning, NY. The engines are throttled up for the approaching grade a snow squall just deposited a fresh coat of white powder on the landscape. Sixty-five miles ahead is Lyons, NY where the Fallbrook Line meets the NYC's Water Level Route where the Alcos will have no trouble delivering its consist to DeWitt Yard in Syracuse.

The Phoebe Snow

Running westbound as train no. 3, two E-8s led by no. 818 crosses the skewed through-truss bridge over Newtown Creek as it approaches its station stop in Elmira, NY. It's 1955 and within five years the Erie and Lackawanna Railroads will merge into the Erie-Lackawanna RR.

Second NY-100

Erie Lackawanna Railroad's expedited freight train was given the train symbol NY-100 for its eastbound trip from Chicago to New York.  The hottest traffic on the railroad was moved on this train.  On some occasions traffic was so heavy that it required the railroad to run a second section of NY-100 to accommodate the overflow. Symbolled as Second NY-100, the train is powered by two SDP-45's as it rolls east through Big Flats, NY in the pre-dawn hours of January 1968.

Waiting for the Local

Rock Island GP-40 no. 344 and two road weary mates hold the mainline waiting for a meet with a westbound local at Gerald, MO in the summer of 1976.  Though the first boxcar displays the Rock's new image, it would take more than paint and fancy graphics to revive this once great prairie hauler.  Alas, within four short years the Rock would be all but a memory.
