This book contains drawings of the equipment that was operating
throughout the New York Central Railroad System just before
it became part of Penn-Central and not long after that... CONRAIL.
The drawings are essentially blueprints that a skilled employee could recognize, repair, and service equipment that was in service. While much of the equipment
in here was built for the NYC and subsidiary lines some was built by them
in their own shops using their own designs and copies of proven designs.
This data is something that each railroad had on hand for their crews operating
the trains and the shops in the areas concerned. In the case where repairs
were necessary these were used to help restore damaged equipment.
Due to the poor quality of the originals many of the folios required editing
This book has 138 pages with 159 folios & tables.
