Yup, several Pennsy passenger trains were re-routed over the old NYC
during the 1972 floods. However, they were quickly dropped, once it
was realized they could run trains on the old NYC route faster than
on the old Pennsy route. They were annulled in short time!
A little history: Tommy Connell was my engineer from Syracuse to
Albany and J.V. (Jazz) Carey was our reliving engineer at Albany.
Jazz took the Broadway from Albany, NY to New York City! Both old
time engineers are gone. Jazz Carey having only passed away this year
at the ripe old age of 91! Everyone time Jazz saw me, he reminded me
that we were the two last living who ran the Broadway on the Penn
Central during the floods of 1972! Now I am the only one left!
