The purpose of this thread is to catalog the remnants of the NYC that still exist. It doesn't matter if it's a locomotive, caboose, freight car, coach, station, old rails or even a signal. If it's vintage NYC and still around in the 21st Century, let's see what you've got!  
 
Speaking of signals, I'll start it out with a signal base that sits next to the Water Level Route:

A week earlier, I caught a hat trick on the Ontario Midland. We can see a former NYC depot, rails and even a former NYC S4 (which now OMID #3):

Here is the NYC station in Anderson IN. It has been completely redone and is now a dance studio. Photo taken in October of 2003.

New York Central surviving locomotives, 215 survivors known:
 
http://gold.mylargescale.com/Scottychaos/NewYorkCentral/
 
Most of that database is from 2006. (If a locomotive entry has no year at the end of the row, its data as-of 2006). I do update the list as individual changes come my way, and I then indicate the year of the entry with a notation for the year at the end of the row.
 
If anyone knows of anything now incorrect on that list, please make a post here! and I will update it..

Let us not forget the 0-6-0 #6721 that was damaged by a runaway hopper in the summer of 2015 in Utica, NY. I'm not sure as to whether or not it has been repaired.
