Trackside on the New York Central with William J. Brennan (Trk #86)
In the 1950s, Al Perlman became president of a New York Central Railroad badly in need of rationalization and modernization. In the ensuing years, he completed dieselization, installed CTC on the main lines, and believed in good customer service for profitable freight business. Under his aegis, the NYC introduced Flexi-Flo covered hoppers, Flexi-Van container service, and ushered in a new Century Green paint scheme to salute the new services. Enjoy this fond look back at a vision of the New York Central in the 1960s through the creative camera of Bill Brennan!
