Being one of many local Chicago area railfans myself...I have a tendency to follow several now "Fallen Flag" railroads of the past that once had served Chicago many years ago, and have long since vanished through merger take overs by other railroads.
One of my all time favorites, was the former New York Central Railroad.
Heck! With it's famous first class deluxe passenger trains, variety of locomotives and equipment, interesting and stylish corporate logos, as well as Jade green box cars and cabooses beginning during the late 1950's...what was not to like about the NYC?
I found this old 1960's era photograph from the New York Central Railroad on the internet.
Alco (American Locomotive Works) Model F A 2 cab unit diesel electric locomotive # 1009, was photographed in Detroit Michigan.
This model of locomotive was introduced during the mid 1940's, and was used on the New York Central's early dieselized freight trains. These engines operated on the NYC, until the late 1960's.
