Large Scale Central

Big Steam, the NYC

Big steam running on the New York Central mostly in the early 1950’s. Interesting to see how much daily life revolved around trains back then.

Awesome! Love the sound of those big engines!

I find it amazing how quickly this big Iron Horses disappeared from revenue service given how vital they look and sound in these movies!


Did you notice how every car going over the hump had its own brakeman? No car retarders as yet! Shows up around 25:25 on the video.
