Scarce original Time Table for the New Sleek Silver Empire State Express dated Sunday December 7th 1941. Certainly a date made infamous for what was happening thousands of miles away in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. This time table belonged to the train's chief engineer and was reflective of him keeping this particular one due to the train's grand showing at the Edison avenue freight yards that day. This news of the train’s grand showing was stated according to ticket agent Joseph Shea in a newspaper article. The time table comes with several newspaper articles and related clippings of this train’s moment in history. By December 8th there likely was not a person talking about this train.
