New York

New Haven [Penn Central]
New York, New York

One of the features that endeared United Aircraft's TurboTrain to railfans was the ability to virtually look over the engineer's shoulder. Here we see a view of the cab from a passenger's vantage point (in this case the cab is empty as this was the rear cab of the train at the time). The New York City skyline can be seen in the background as the train crosses part of Long Island on its way to the Hell Gate Bridge.
