The WB in these? I think the cool look works for an overcast Winter day like that.

Love the shots, and there is NO WB issue whatsoever, according to my color dropper widget, and my eyes.

How many hours did they require you to work a week back then? How much did they pay you?

Weren't there child labor laws back in 1954-1955?  :p

Heck, I would have paid them to drive the train. This was one of the first diesels on the New York Central Lines and was taken inside the shops at Avis, Pa where my uncle used to work.

Nice. My grandpa let me 'drive' his train too when I was a yong'un. A real thrill sitting in that big chair behind all the controls.

I saw a "work train" along a siding yesterday. Went home to get the camera to take pics. My father was a railroader starting with New York Central then retiring from Penn-Central in 1975.
Please forgive me as I do not know the proper terminology in "railroad talk"
I have never seen a train like this one before.

These cars with the angled 'tanks' I am guessing holds some kind of liquid for grinding purposes?

What is it this train grinds? Something to do with the track I am sure..

Thank you and enjoy the pics!
