A train-by-train look at the New York Central's premier Passenger Services in the 1950s and 1960s as the Central's attitude toward Passenger Services changed. A few steam locomotives, many lightning-striped E-units and a few of the later white-striped E-units. Also many photographs of observation cars. The equipment was clean, the trains were fast.
