The first 4-6-4 engine ever developed, they delivered the speed which powered the crack streamliners over the “water level route” from New York to Chicago. These beauties are seen racing along the shore of the Hudson River, and elsewhere around the system.

The great luxury trains of the Central are all here: The Twentieth Century Limited, The Commodore Vanderbilt, The Pacemaker, The Empire State Express, and a dozen others.

This feature was made from films that were old, but crystal clear. Only the best footage was used. Also includes brief views of hump yard and branch line operation.
