    Matt. It's 1939 and per your request I have walked down to the tracks to try and get photos of some Hudsons for you. I was just walking over the bridge over the tracks when I heard a train and knew I wouldn't have time to get trackside, so I took the photo from the bridge. It turned out to be a Mohawk heading a freight to New York. I've attached the photo for you, more to come.

    I waited around a couple hours and finally captured The 20th Century as it passed thru.

    A bit further down the line, the 20th Century meets a J1e headed westbound with a local.

    Beautiful photos! Excellent "weathering" dirty, but not neglected.
    Made me think back to my childhood, Thanksgiving in Croton Falls N.Y., steam on the Harlem division between Croton Falls, and Brewster N.Y..

    Very nice Gary! The first photo is my favorite. The shadows and a gleam from the headlight really make the picture seem alive. Is that an oil-burner? I ask because most steamers out west with elephant ears were oil-powered. The coal burners were a little too sooty for passenger use after oil came along.

    Thanks Marty. Matt, I did receic=ve the message today, I will get the fax Monday. Glad you liked the photos. Pete, The locos were all painted by Blake Tatar. The paint jobs are great. I've another lined up. Would like to talk to you about the Harlem Division sometime. BDC, no, not an oil burner, these NYC locos were all coal burners. Elephant ears supposedly lifted smoke from the train.
