That was great, Larry! Almost felt like I was there with you. What year do you think that was? And, do you have any idea what locomotives were pulling those great trains? I always figured the NYC had an advantage with the Hudsons and Niagaras but not so sure about the diesels.
Probably E units. The year mid 50s. I went a few times, my dad more often. They were beautiful. There were quite a few vantage points in. South Chicago. But State Line was where they were at speed. My dad witnessed the event back in the steam era too.
