Metro-North workers leave with talent, experience

Pat Flynn, a retiring Metro-North Railroad heavy-equipment operator who has worked on large projects repairing track damages following storms and disasters, is one of the many workers who will be retiring from the MTA within a month. Flynn has been collecting model trains since the 1970s, and has a room in his Hyde Park home devoted to his hobby, where he'll spend much of his time after retiring. (April 12, 2013)
