    Inherited from my grandfather. I'm trying to find information on this item. I believe it is one of the missing 5 of 15 produced. My grandfather was a superintendent on the NY Central and was giving the picture during a station renovation project.

      Once again that is not something you see every day. Love that they painted the whole train length wise.

      Here is some background:
      If your grandfather was with the NYC and given the train as a gift it might have been in conjunction with LaSalle St. Station, Chicago as it was used by both NYC and CRIP.

      I have a print of the Rock Island Pearl Train can anyone tell me when they were printed? and how much it should be insured for? my father was a conductor on the Rock Island RR and it came out of the Rock Island Depot in Des Moines Iowa.
      I believe the station master gifted it to my father.
