Better get use to them, almost quarter of M-8 fleet is in service.
and they are scrapping M-2's as fast as M-8's come in.
this weeks test train had 9204-9205 - 9126-9127 - 9206-9207

Was the The 20th Century Limited desirable work? It would be good for the New York or Chicago crews but it was middle of the night work for crews in between.

Remember, back then operating crews only worked 1 or at most two divisions meaning a days pay for far less than 8 hrs. An example from 1962 on a much slower train--depart Marion IA 2:50 AM arr Chicago @ 8:50. Lv Chicago 7PM arr Marion 12:43 AM. So within 24 hrs two 6 hour shifts counting as 4 days pay, then two full days off. This was Cdr, trnm, flagman, baggageman. Engineer, Fireman worked on the single division Chgo-Savanna. two 3 1/2 hr shifts count as two days.

and so did the Milwaukee Rd "Arrow" the lowly train on the line between Chicago and Omaha. When I got a cab ride from Mt Carroll (where I was in college) to Savanna, the engineer bragged he had 52 years seniority so if they gave him grief over a kid in the cab he could care less.

Since some of us here are known to work extra, what makes you think I wouldn't get it, to cover a senior dinosaur whose joints got a little too achy to allow them to work, or woke up with a killer bit of gout or had their lactose intolerance act up, and render them useless to work???

That's why us junior guys are ALWAYS available to cover in place of decrepit dinosaurs!! :-)

extra list in those days worked a lot different, no combined conductor and train man list and if you were called of trainman list you got the junior job, everyone was stepped up.

In those days you would not be able to hold the Conductors list. only senior trainman could be promoted to Conductor, these days everyone is.

Now THAT'S a train! A real classic too. And later on in the 40s and 50s they ran Budd coaches (looks like these were Pullmans). Great video of what railroading was like back in the good old days!

a bit of detail. The heavyweight was all Pullman built. Both the prewar and post war lightweight Centuries were pure Pullman Standard until the Sleepercoaches and combination w/ the all coach Pacemaker. The train then became a stainless steel coach section ahead of the two one grey sleeper section. A word or two about Sleepercoaches. The "Slumbercoach" name was a Pullman Company service mark. By 58 when NYC restructured the Century NYC had left Pullman opting to operate sleepers in house. So the first four NYC Sleepercoaches were original 24s-8d Budds identical to B&O/MP/CB&Q cars. All the later cars were Budd 22 roomette "Harbor series first class cars sent back to Budd for reconfiguration ending up as 16s-10d cars. These were easily identified by a seam in the fluting.

Don't get me wrong, I think the Cosmopolitan/Metropolitan commuter car designs will always be the best looking, most modern design ever, and yes it will be sad seeing them go, but yes I do totally like the M-8s and they are a breeze to work with. I have them on my run every day for Trains 1570, 1595 & 1398, 8 car set. Occasionally we get 10 car M-8 sets.

Now we're talking. Pity no more Boston-bound trains pass this stop these days though . . . (was this one? with the EP-5 in front)
