I thank you for these!! I liked the first one best because you were there with the engine at full stop then he moved a few hundred feet then stopped again. That was different for me, I have no idea why he did that.

My father was a railroader with New York Central then retired from Penn-Central with 40 years between the two but I really never learned about rail roading from my dad. He was "on-call" never knowing for sure when he was going to need to go to work.

Not sure what was going on last night. The crew rolled it back and forth a couple times. This is the East/West bound line through downtown. The main yard is to the East. They may have been coupling cars in the yard as this one headed out Eastbound.

Would have been great to talk to your Dad about his adventures at work. I'm sure it gets tedious at times but railroading looks like a wild ride.

My dad hired into NYC in 1935 and retired in 1975. He passed in 1997 at age 86. I wish he was still around to be able to ask many many questions I never thouoght of asking earlier.

my dad was with the Grand Trunk Western as was my grandpa and one of my uncles. all Carmen, never crew.

my dad is 92 and he doesnt remember much about his work, and the information i get now contradicts what i got yesterday and tomorrow will contradict today...


-im just trying. sometimes i succeed

I like how it came over and posed for you. They've never done that for me.

I think you will find it's going the other way, it's actually "mooning", :-D
