With their route passing through one of the Northeast's most scenic areas, the New York Central Line chose to let Mother Nature be its spokesperson, by showing the scenery its passengers could enjoy rather than the trains that would carry them. Walter Greene was the Art Director at General Electric from 1903-1940. He painted images for all of GE's calendars, and began painting for the New York Central Railroad in 1925 when he took over their calendar project.
