Remarks & Notes 
An end of summer trip with my parents in their '50 Olds Rocket 88 to Boston from N.J. enabled me time for this diversion with my Argus C3 to North Station in time for the arrival of the Flying Yankee, when it was being utilized as the Minuteman. The Flying Yankee was the 3rd streamlinere train in N. America after the UP's M-10000 and CB&Q's Pioneer Zephyr, and a virtual clone to the Zephyr except that it dispensed with the baggage/mail space to seat 142 in three articulated cars. (thanks Wiki)
