    Very sorry to hear of Lou Grogan’s death. Sadly, I never had the good fortune of meeting him. Though I did purchase “The Coming…” shortly after it was published, and have enjoyed since, both as a reminiscence of 20 years riding the Harlem, and as an excellent reference. Thank you for your tribute to this fine gentleman.

    Hi Emily – this is a lovely tribute – Mr. Grogan’s book has been invaluable to me throughout my career, and his passing is certainly a loss.

    Hi Emily, I’m sorry to learn of Lou’s passing. I’m an engineer on the Harlem line. What a great history book of the Harlem line. An retired engineer gave me this book, with a good luck message. So this book has alot of sentimental value to me. Ironically, I know Lou’s sons, and knew of him, from Pawling as I am from here as well. Thanks for sharing.

    Obtained a copy of his book when it was published and corresponded with him in long hand letters. Pre e- mail. Still have them So much more personal. Wonder if anyone will do another book on this historic railroad. So few original sources left like Lou.
