The New York Central System (NYCS) railroad originated as early as 1826. At its height of popularity, the NYCS was one of the largest American railroads operating. From 1902-1967, NYCS ran a first-class passenger train service from Grand Central Station in New York City, New York, to La Salle St. in Chicago, Illinois. In 1967, the company updated their logo from the monochromatic image previously to a tri-tone black/red/white image. Although not as grand as it used to be, the New York Central System is still in operation under the company Conrail, and is used to transport goods from the Eastern states to the Midwest.
