New Haven TOFC Clinic update

Peter Ness

Once again I’ve revised my New Haven Railroad TOFC Clinic you can find here:’ve added builders photos, model photos, additional content on the New Haven Clejan flats, a notable quote or two on New Haven Trailer Flats, loading and unloading times, some equipment costs, an aerial view of Harlem River Yard that shows the TOFC terminal and also I’ve discovered the origin of the term “piggyback”! (I’m very sure it’s anecdotal)


I promise this will be the last update for a while as the only two items I am still actively researching are the 1958-59 disappearance of 100 New Haven Clejans of which only 74 returned, and more information on the 1955 leased trailers.
