NYC Diesel Locomotives in Jacksonville : LUSENET : ACL and SAL Railroads Historical Society : One Thread

I am starting to write an article about New York Central participation in Florida passenger service. When I was in Jacksonville in the mid sixties, some of the Jacksonville Terminal switcher crews told me that they had seen NYC diesel locomotives come in on the New Royal Palm and be serviced at JAX. Can anyone confirm this, and better yet, does anyone have photos?

There was no hindrence to through operation of NYC diesels from Cincinatti on the Southern as both railroads had a compatible train stop system. The time period was short-1949-1957 though.

Any help would be appreciated.
