The voice of PSCC........Jeff Stevens is all smiles. Now everyone can
associate the face with that infamous, unmistakable voice of the man who
keeps the heavy traffic on the many tracks of New York's Pennsylvania
Station moving right along.
Jeff is always ready and willing to assist crews with a wealth of

Washington DC is due in and what track it can be found on.
Here's a new arrival to our PSCC cast, its LIRR
Console Operator (Train Dispatcher) Sebastian Toovey and he is the
voice of Middle Tour (3:00pm-11:00pm).
Sebastion has since left the LIRR and has gone to
work for Metro North as an RTC. He still wears his American Airlines
shirt over at Grand Central.
Here's another heavy hitter from the heart of Penn
Station Operations Center, Yardmaster Augustus Moore.

Central Control. This is a man that can make a difficult job look easy.
Auggie hired with Penn Central as a block operator and advanced quickly to
Train Director at A Tower. Today, as yardmaster at Pennsylvania Station,
New York he contemplates moves in his head faster than most people can plot

Here he is with a great smile. I think he just got off the phone with
girlfriend No. 4. Nos. 3, 5 and 7 were on hold. "
