The New York Central Railroad in 1950
Several years ago I wrote a story on the major railroads of 1950 and what happened to them. Now I am following up with a closer examination of the New York Central Railroad. This railroad only lasted until 1968 when it merged into Penn Central. But, what was it like in 1950? Find all sorts of unusual things from 1950 such as listings of all equipment and tracks, income from unusual investments and affiliates. See the managers and directors.
