FDR's Abandoned Railcar, Grand Central Terminal, NYC, 2009

FDR’s Abandoned Railcar
1/6 sec at f/4

This heavily armored railcar, reputedly used by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, has been abandoned deep below the Waldorf Astoria Hotel on a forgotten siding associated with Grand Central Terminal. The most curious feature is the car’s suspension system or “trucks.” They were designed to eliminate or reduce lateral motion (side to side swaying), possibly providing comfort to a paralyzed FDR.
