Data are presented for low-latitude northern Milky Way carbon stars. Coordinates and cross identifications are given for carbon stars in nine fields thought to be unusually transparent. Of these, 142 are confirmed new discoveries. Five hundred thirty-eight JHK photometric observations are reported for 480 stars. Six hundred twenty velocity measurements are presented for 424 stars. Improved coordinates are given for many previously discovered stars. Averaged JHK photometry and velocities are summarized for a sample of 400 stars.
