It all started out when we got a note from Richard O. Aichele from Information Works Inc. in Saratoga Springs, NY. He commented on one of our WebSites about “Who Owns Grand Central” and then: “Back in 1980 I lived under GCT for several days between runs of the Irving Trust Winter Olympics Spacial. I was the guy who had the fun of getting the five private cars together, dealing with the railroads and making the trips run as smoothly as possible. I have some the details of it on my website www.inforworks.com/trains.htm
Still remember how different – quiet like a cathedral – GCT was about 3 or 4 AM.
Took a look at his Website. Before I even got to the 1980 Olympics, I ran into a section on the Troy Union Railroad. (One of our favorites).
Then I got to his section on the 1980 Olympics and the Irving Trust Company special train. Great details, great pictures.
He also has a section on the Railroad Steam Era.
