Full Throttle FT-1003B-1  New York Central  885905, 885938  Three bay cylindircal hopper set  The New York Central Railroad (NYC), established in 1853, operated in the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic regions of the USA, connecting New York and Boston in the East with Chicago and St. Louis in the Midwest. NYC was headquartered in the NYC Building, adjacent to it's Grand Central Station. In 1968, the NYC merged with the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR), to form Penn Central (PC) which went bankrupt by 1970 and merged into Conrail (CR) in 1976. CR broke-up in 1999, and it's system was split between CSXT and Norfolk Southern (NS), with CSX acquiring most of the NYC trackage. Some of NYC's fleet of Cylindrical Hoppers, important to "modern" shipping, were repainted to reflect the PC and CR eras, but many remained in NYC livery.    NIB
