Here is a listing of updates made to this site since January 1, 2002. Also, starting on that date, new photographs and other material has been posted with their download size (if applicable) and their date of posting to the web site.
For the first time in probably two years, I have completed a major update to the web site. Updates and/or new material has been added to the Bibliography, News, Timetable maps, Central Region, New York City, Lake Region - Toledo Division, and Northern Region pages.
The A Sampling of Penn Central Google Earth Project has been added to the web site.
The model railroad product announcements page has been updated.
New pictures have been added in the Metropolitan Region New York City and the Eastern Region New Jersey and Philadelphia Commuter Area pages. I also update the Gondolas and Flatcars and Work Equipment pages as well.
The background appearance of the web site was given a new look.
In addition, new pictures have been added to the Boxcars, Hoppers, and EMD Diesel pages. New pictures have also been added to the New Jersey Division, Cleveland Division West, and Cleveland Division Lake pages. A new listing of ore train symbols has been posted in the Operations section of the Library.
Effective immediately, I will no longer be including file size and date information on photos and documents on this site, as it has become too much to maintain. Such information will be removed as pages are refreshed. In these days of widespread broadband, large file sizes are becoming less of an issue, so it no longer makes sense for me to include file sizes on the web pages. Thank you for your understanding.
Upgraded the navigation menu code so it is now works with newer Netscape and Mozilla browsers.
Just a few minor cleanups, typo fixes, etc. No major updates this time around.
After a two-year hiatus, I have finally updated the Sightings page. I wish I would have done it sooner, as I found in my stack lots of neat pictures of former PC equipment which has still be running out on the rails over the past two years.
New FL9 pictures have been posted on EMD Diesels Page 1, and a new SW8 photo has been added to EMD Diesels Page 3. A new RS32 photo has been added to the Alco Diesels page. Also, a new Lot 122F coil flat car picture has been added to the Gondolas/Flatcars page.
Added a paint scheme roster of E44 electric locomotives.
An improved look to the web site, along with a new name, were rolled out.
The archives of the Penn Central Mailing List have been finally uploaded. Also, new interlocking maps were added to the Official Track Diagrams page. (Thanks to Ed Portzline for the Eastern Region maps.)

Added a new Contact Form to the web site, and cleaned up some old HTML code throughout the web site. Added this What's New page. Moved four pictures from the New Haven Region to the New Haven Line page in the Metropolitan Region, as they were posted in the wrong place.
