Fifty Or More Years - PC (NYC) 4079
Author: refarkas

It is mid-1968 in Painesville, Ohio where Penn Central 4079 (ex-NYC still in full NYC paint) heads a westbound passenger train.

What a great shot !
Nice to see NYC passenger trains (even if it is barely PC).

A fine image. The simplified cigar-band paint didn't have the class and sophistication of the lightning-stripes, but when reasonably clean and in a nicely matched set (with the band all at the same height like this -- sometimes the heights didn't quite line up), it looked pretty darn good.

A neat catch too with the NYC covered coil car on the adjacent track to the left, with the coil covers lettered for NYC / PC subsidiary P&LE to boot. And a standard NYC whistle post, too. Overall, a classic, very well composed image. Thanks for posting it for us to enjoy.

An outstanding photo.  An excellent example of how great PC cold look.
Thanks for another outstanding PC photo posting.

Nice shot!!  Old NYC RR Toledo, OH based passenger train and engine crews worked east to Cleveland, OH and west to Elkhart, IN.

Great photo. Really got a roll on.  Thanks for sharing.

Was PC (ex- NYC) operating stand-alone Mail and Express trains by then? A lot of head end business on this train. Makes it look a little more "old school."
