Here are presented many sharp color photographs taken on generally sunny days. There was quite a parade of a variety of interesting passenger carrying trains.

Here is an all-color photography look at passenger railroading in the metropolitan New York region in the 1970s, a fascinating era of transition, blending relics from the turn of the century with modern Turboliners built by a company that manufactured jet engines, and everything in between.

The tour starts on the former New York Central Harlem line and makes its way around the area, visiting the neighboring Hudson line, the New Haven, Jersey Central, Pennsy (including the jointly-owned tracks of the NY&LB at South Amboy) and end up on the Erie Lackawanna, looking at both the former Erie and D&LW lines. Enjoy the view and take a trip back in time!
