People Who Worked on The Westchester

Sometimes we forget that it takes people to make the railroad run. Unfortunately, only a few photos have surfaced over the years of employees. These pictures are from the late Donald Engel, whose father was a NYW&B conductor, and shared with us through a private collection. The employee names came from whatever was written on the backs of the originals.
