Lightning Stripes Volume 2 takes the reader across the NYC in
the 1950s and 1960s with crisp color photos showcasing the full range of motive
power, from road switchers to main line diesels. Take a photographic cross
country journey from Boston -- on the Boston & Albany -- to the electrified
routes out of New York City (with stops on the Harlem and River Divisions) and
then out across New York State to Albany, Buffalo, Pennsylvania (to the P&LE),
Ohio (Cleveland Union Terminal), Canada (via the Detroit Tunnel), Michigan
(Central and Western Divisions), Indiana, and finally on to La Salle Street
Station in Chicago. As the black FT cover suggests, this book has a wealth of
first generation diesels in our favorite paint scheme. Includes maps and a roster of road switchers.
