Re: Erie boxcar, late 1940s / Stamford Coal Gas Plant

Fascinating article on the Stamford gas and electric utilities. 

In 1970, I joined the IBM family of companies in the Service Bureau Corp. as a rent-a-programmer, and one of my assignments was at Conn. Light & Power's offices in New Britain converting HELCO (Hartoford Elec Light Co) billing systems to work with CP&L's systems.  The CP&L mainframe computer was an old IBM 7074, which is what I learned to code on at Syracuse University in the late 1960s.
