This is a rare NEW YORK CENTRAL film from 1948! It shows a healthy, vibrant railroad with both steam and diesel power at work.
This film was not produced for the public. It was an in-house employee “pep talk” and it shows all facets of the NYC’s business. You'll see freight & passenger operations, car ferries and even the first "Trailer-On-Flat-Car" (TOFC ) operation, the famous New York Central “Flexi-Van” trailer train service.
