This Day In History: 1911-01-11
As a reward to its best engineers the Erie will allow their names to be lettered on the outside of their cabs. Harvey Springstead of Waldwick, who is the engineer of the westbound local through Mahwah at 10:40 every day is the first to be honored. The Erie is the first railroad to adopt this custom. It is very popular with the engineers and may encourage even better service, safety, and economy.
