Another Morning Sun railroad book with gorgeous well-reproduced
color photos. The topic is the New York Central System in its later years under
Alfred Perlman prior to merger. Most of the pictures are in the Hudson River
Valley. The book talks about Brennan’s photographic creativity. While there are some excellent night photos,
many photos emphasize passenger trains and power, with the surrounding locals cropped
from the edges. And, while the book centers around both sides of the Hudson Valley, we do briefly travel to Niagara Falls and Cleveland. If passenger trains,
especially NYC during the 60’s trip your trigger, this is your book.
