The period reflected in the photographs presented here of the 20th century Michigan Central (NYC) spans 30 years, a company in various stages of transition from the 1940s through the early Penn Central years. The period spanned the administrations of Gustav Metzman, William White, Robert Young, and Alfred Perlman, and each of these men was leading a company which was in trouble, despite outward appearances. Famed photographer Emery Gulash takes the reader out on his home turf to photograph the ever-changing scene on the New York Central Michigan Central trackage from 1940 right up to the 1968 Penn Central merger. Emery Gulash was trackside in these years to record in color these last decades of the Michigan Central. Lots of passenger action pulled by both steam and diesel. RDC's, Lightning Stripes, and some cigar band diesels fill out the pages. Hardbound w/dust cover, 8.5"x11", 128 pages, 250 FULL-COLOR photographs with captions. Printed on glossy paper for photographic enhancement.
