LI 616
Title:  LI 616
Description:  Long Island 616 on the rear of a train at Hunterpoint Station in Long Island City, Queens, New York City on an unknown day in June 1980, Kodachrome by Chuck Zeiler. The Long Island had 19 of these power cars, converted FA1's and FA2's, the traction motors were removed, and the prime mover de-rated to 600 horsepower running at a constant speed to provide heating and lighting power to the coaches. The controls were retained and wired for push-pull service. This particular locomotive started on the SP&S as FA1 860A, built in February 1949 ( c/n 76675 ), then renumbered to SP&S 880, then became BN 4108, acquired by the LI around July 29, 1973, repowered at an unknown date with a Detroit Diesel by GE. It left the LI roster in 2001 for Touristiques des Chaudieres Appalaches ( same road number ).

FA to Oyster Bay
Title:  FA to Oyster Bay
Description:  An Oyster Bay train takes to the branch, this FA trailing, as was common in those days. Former "zip" car 2716 is first out behind the FA. These were originally MP 75's, acquired for the 1964/65 World's Fair, and were painted in the blue with orange stripe scheme, lettered "Your steel thruway to the Fair gateway." They were converted to diesel hauled cars after the M 1's arrived between 1968 and 72. There were a few that still had their lit nuberboards on the side, even at this late date.
