Thanks, JJ.

Had to laugh at the description of those who would want the Morning Sun Color Guide to Refrigerator Cars. "...strictly for the model railroading set, who concern themselves with the precise placement of the handrails, the exact shade of the window sashes in the control tower."

I resemble that remark!

Well, sometimes.

Yup, that's a Penn Central GG1 bound for NY Penn. I live around the corner from the station and remember riding behind the black "big nose engines" (as I called them as a kid) from Rahway to New York with my parents.

And speaking of Penn Central, why, or why won't Morning Sun Books reissue Penn Central Power? I kick myself every time I passed that book by back in the early 1990s :wink:
