  • Remembering: Long Island Rail Road's Fairbanks-Morse-Era (Bernet)

In the late 1940's the railroad chose diesel locomotive builder Fairbanks-Morse as a supplier to start its first large scale plan of dieselization of its road services. Throughout the 1950's and into the early 1960's the Fairbanks Morse helped make sure the Dashing Dans arrived at work on time and then reciprocated in the evening by bringing them safely home to New York suburbia. The FM era on the Long Island ceased in early 1964 when Alco Products delivered a replacement fleet of locomotives. This book is filled with a variety of well captioned photographs. Also included is a full roster, as well as, an informative look at the trains, the territory and the roles this interesting fleet played during their late 1940's to early 1960's era. Mostly B&W, but a few colour shots included. Double Take Productions 2011. SB New. 48pp. NOS-LIF-BMS
