Re: The New York Central in 1928-1929


I cannot think of a more pleasant exercise than being atop a boxcar in frigid winter weather cranking a "movie machine".  Wow.  The fun!.

That said.

I saw a NYC locomotive numbered 1904, in the street scenes.  I am only slightly intrigued, being a Northwestern kind of guy.  But yet.  Pretty damn cool.

Anyone of a more northeastern bent have thoughts on this locomotive?  Is it a Shay?

And, by the way, I am VERY impressed at the quality of this film.  "Hats off" to the lucky winner who got to climb the ladders on the rolling stock.
