As we continue to look at materials published in celebration of the relaunch of the New York Central’s re-equipped Empire State Express, we find a very high quality brochure put out by the Waugh Equipment Company highlighting many of the details on the new Empire.   Most importantly, of course, was Waugh’s selling of the WAUGHMAT Twin Cushion draft gear which was installed on all of the couplers of the new Budd built ESE cars.   Yet the brochure below spends most of its pages highlighting the train and not their product.

So please take a look at this brochure which has many nice photographs of the interior of the Empire State Express as it went into service on December 7, 1941 along with many details on the train’s appointments.
