A hectic week on the New York Central Train Layout has finally slowed down a bit. First up was the February 1st Penn Central Birthday Celebration. In honor of that PC Ralph himself sent over PC train KT-1, Williams Yard, King Port NY to Terminal Yard in Empire City as part of our fledgling virtual operations. This was not just any PC train, PC Ralph used plenty of NYC and PRR "predecessor" rolling stock as a tribute to these newly fallen flags.
Now all this may not sound like much but putting together a duplicate train of KT-1, filling out car cards, running it around the layout, switching out it's freight cars at their required destination and taking pictures of the process took some time. Add in the Extra 7606 that I was dispatching (I'll cover that in a separate blog entry) and the week was filled with rail car movements. And it was a lot of fun!
This 50' NYC boxcar will be loaded at American Hardware with a shipment for Peerless Appliance
