In New York Central times, the dispatching center was at 466 Lexington Ave. Anyone happen to know when it moved down to GCT?

I seem to recall that the dispatchers went to 347 Madison Aveune first before Grand Central Terminal. I think it predates 1996, I might have more on here somewhere.

It was at least 3 or 4 years ago. The OCC was in their old space, Mr. Fahey has since retired, Mr. Bucker was in his old position and as previously mentioned Sherry was still around.

I just found out that Amazon now has this in their on-demand video section, and if you have Amazon Prime, all three seasons (which they claim to be all Season 1) are free. Episode 2 is Grand Central Terminal: http://a.co/dVnfjeo" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
