Transportation ➔ Photograph, New York Central Railroad Pulled By Engine #8754

Identifier:
2018.5.14
Description:
A black and white photograph of a New York Central Railroad locomotive, numbered 8754, pulling multiple freight cars. The train is located next to what appears to be some sort of manufacturing company.

The New York Central Railroad operated from 1853 - 1968, when it merged with the Pennsylvania Railroad and shortly thereafter filed for bankruptcy. In the aftermath of the bankruptcy filing, the company’s assets were broken up and redistributed through successive restructurings. The New York Central system served most of the northeastern United States, including but not limited to New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana, Illinois and Massachusetts.
