Remarks & Notes 
Yes it did look like and sound like an airplane. At the time of this picture security on the Penn-Central was very lax on the right of way. The photographer in front of me is obviously in a dangerous location. Look at the debris on the tracks you can tell no one really cares at this moment in history. Everyone in 1971 was waiting for the Penn Central to go away. For more Trubo train shots Click here Click here
