LONG ISLAND RAILROADER 

The Long Island Railroader magazine was issued by the Public Affairs Department as an Employee Only publication. Issued for the full years of 1950 to 1955, with some issues covering two months, as indicated on the front covers. All of the magazines are pictured below.

I would venture the mission was to enhance employee morale, as all of the magazines have articles about groups of employees and individual employees.
