Steve:

Good pictures of LIRR's "Little Toot" in Queens Village back in September 1971.
I never saw this promotional item in use - makes me wonder if it was preserved someplace...

The A&P Supermarket pictured is at the corner of 214th Street and Jamaica Avenue am I right?

Any idea who the two young ladies were - and how old they may be today?
An issue of the LIRR employee newspaper from that time period may hold that answer - and the
identity of the engineer at the control of "Little Toot"... MACTRAXX
EXPRESS TRAIN TO NEW YORK PENN STATION-NO JAMAICA ON THIS TRAIN-PLEASE STAND CLEAR OF THE CLOSING TRAIN DOORS

For the employees: Wasn't that on display near the "Worry Bench" at Hillside at one time?
