From DJ flap - The late 1940s and early '50s was a grand time to be trackside along the New York Central with a good camera loaded with color film. Classic Hudsons, Mohawks and Niagaras were running out their final years and the new diesels, dressed in handsome Lightning Stripes, were still novelty. Weekends often found the author out somewhere along the NYC in Indiana, Michigan or Illinois, catching the show. (Description by http-mart, Roy Schoenbeck)

Gene Van Dusen was out 'trackside' on the western end of the Water Level Route with Lieca in hand loaded with Kodachrome in the late 1940s and early 1950s. If it wasn't a Hudson or Niagara, then it had to be a Mohawk or Mike. The diesels were so clean and new you could eat off them.
