A few years into P-C, we see ex-NH "Washboard" #5111 at Stamford.
 
While the car is mostly still in NH garb, note that the old NH placard have been removed from the sides......

So much railroad history in this 1976 view, the likes of which we will never see again; here we see an ancient ex-NYC "S" motor hauling a string of ex-NH "Washboard" MU's (note pans are down).
 
This might have been a fantrip (note fellow with camera on the right).......

SPV and ex-NYC MU lazing the day away, discussing current events (the SPV's were but a mere blip on the radar, when compared to the decades of good, reliable service provided by the ex-NYC cars)

1968.....the year the mighty "Central" was about to forever disappear down the echoing corridors of time.
 
But.....for the moment......all appears as it should....

Here is a set at Croton - Harmon with the pantagraphs removed. Not sure if they were ever used on the ex NYC to GCT.

NEFAN:
 
Your last photo prompted me to consult my copy of "COMMUTER TRAINS TO GRAND CENTRAL" by Tom Nelligan; I came across this bit of info:
 
"........the fleet included relics from both the NYC and NH, and a batch of 40 coaches were purchased from western railroads in 1970, including AT&SF, L&N, and SLSF. Also, 8 ex-DH coaches were obtained......."
 
Surplus AMTRAK cars also were purchased later on for commuter service out of GCT..........

N. White Plains yard, 2009.
 
Note one of the ex-PHOEBE SNOW tavern-lounge observations; after being sold by the E-L, the two cars served for some years as LIRR parlor cars before going to Metro-North as track inspection cars......
