New York Central Freight heads across the E.C. Viaduct

Greetings Blog Followers,

A busy weekend here on the New York Central Train Layout. The mighty Pennsylvania Railroad has been rumbling through Empire City utilizing their temporary track rights. Rail fans have been out in droves catching the action. Today the New York Central answers back to remind everyone who's tracks these are.

New York Central GP20s with assistance from ATSF GP20 head into Empire City with a train load of automobiles, 86' auto parts cars and TOFC trailer flats. Locomotives are from P-2000. Cars are from Athearn, Bachmann, Life Like and an Atlas Caboose brings up the rear. The Turtle Creek Central 50' Auto carriers are Life Like products that have been custom painted and lettered.

A trio of New York Central GP30s haul another auto parts train utilizing 60' Boxcars and 3 steel coil cars through Empire City. Locomotives are by Bachmann Spectrum and were custom painted and lettered. Cars are from Walther's and IHC and an Athearn BB brings up the rear..

The above two trains have been re blocked and are now headed through Empire City towards either Terminal Yard or their consignee within the Empire City District. The auto carriers and TOFC cars are being unloaded at North Side Yard. These cars will make up a hotshot Detroit bound train rumbling through Empire City towards the Motor City with the next 24 hours.
