Railroads on Parade

Post by Pensyfan19 »

While I was looking at the DD1 page on trainsarefun.com, I noticed how there was a DD1 pulling a PRR GG1 and a few other PRR coaches for an event known as Railroads on Parade (not the model train display in Pottersville, NY :wink: ). Does anyone have any information about this trip, or of any other occasions of equipment which is not common to long island visiting the LIRR back in the day? (Not counting the American Freedom Train or the CSX Safety Train)

This is the image in which I am referring to: http://www.trainsarefun.com/lirr/early- ... xhibit.jpg

Sorry in advance if you do not agree with my opinion.

Thank you for this page. In relation to the 1939 World's Fair, I also found more information of the topic and the site itself here:
