Belshe & Prown (2012) - This image of an old Locomotive on the existing train tracks that bisect the Hamlet of Wassaic recalls the history of the milk trains that ran along this train line bringing dairy products from upstate to New York City in the 19th and early part of the 20th century.
Using street signage and Augmented Reality Technology, we will explore the history and impact of the NY Central Railroad Company on the Hamlet of Wassiac, NY.
We would installed several metal street signs around the area near and within the Wassaic Project that would contain information about the old New York Central Railroad Company. The signs were accompanied by an Augmented Reality Model that could be viewed via Smartphone of a scale locomotive sitting on the train tracks that divide the town. This virtual sculpture of an old locomotive will provide a historically relevant juxtaposition with the modern surroundings.
