Building the Maybrook Line Across Dutchess County


The grand plan of the Boston Hartford and Erie Railroad had failed in 1870. Their plan had been to connect southern New England with a shipping port and ferry on the Hudson River at Dennings Point. Tracks were to be built from Connecticut through the southern part of Dutchess County to connect with the D&C/ND&C at Hopewell. Hopewell was not yet a junction. Grading of this line was well under way but track laying at Hopewell had just begun when the failure came. After the failure of the BH&E, the assets were reformed and emerged as the New York and New England Railroad, the NY&NE. By 1880 the ND&C records begin to show signs that the old BH&E plan of reaching the Hudson River was not really dead. The NY&NE Railroad planned to build a ferry facility at Fishkill Landing about a mile north of the old BH&E site at Dennings Point.

. The NY&NE decided to buy trackage rights on the existing ND&C Railroad between Hopewell and Wicopee (Beacon). From Wicopee they planned to build a new section of tracks to connect with the ferry and the Hudson River Railroad at Fishkill Landing, now part of Beacon NY. Probably the biggest obstacle in the line from Brewster to Hopewell was Whaley Lake. There was not enough room between the lake and the rocky hills to build the line so they elected to cross part of the water. Workers soon discovered that the lake was very deep and partly filled with peat. After driving pilings more than 110 feet into the peat they decided to use fill. The fill promptly sank out of sight so they added more fill and the peat began to rise up alongside the construction. Faced with a tight schedule and few options they continued to add train loads of fill through the summer of 1881. It took 80,000 cubic yards of fill before the roadbed was finally stable enough to lay tracks.

Between Wicopee Junction and Fishkill Landing, the NY&NE tracks had to cross the NYC Hudson River line which ran along the river bank. The NY&NE built a bridge over the NYC&HR Railroad to avoid traffic conflicts. After crossing the HR Railroad, the NY&NE tracks curved north along the shore toward Fishkill Landing. This route is still in use as part of the Metro North Railroad.

Construction at Fishkill Landing included a long stretch of pilings driven into the east bank of the river to support the tracks from Wicopee Junction. A considerable amount of fill was required for the roadbed between the river and the Hudson River Railroad tracks. The new line ran northward along the shore to where the ferry facilities were being built. On October 8th a short note stated that the frog to connect the NY&NE main to the ND&C main at Hopewell was ready for installation. A temporary crossover connection to the ND&C main line was installed on 17 October 1881. With the completion of this connection Hopewell became Hopewell Junction. The first train from Boston used the temporary crossover connection at Hopewell Junction and arrived at Fishkill Landing on 21 October 1881. It was one passenger coach and a NY&NE office car. On board were 20 NY&NE officers and directors plus a reporter from the “Newburgh Journal”. After inspecting the work at Fishkill Landing, and eating a hearty meal with interviews, the reporter was dropped off at Matteawan as the train returned to Boston.

The main line connecting switch at Hopewell Junction was installed and traffic began moving on 8 December 1881. Four days later on 12 December the Fishkill Landing ferry began operations with a carload of New York State turkeys bound for Providence Rhode Island. The tracks eastward from Fishkill Landing to Wicopee Junction (in Beacon NY) as well as the section from Hopewell Junction into Connecticut were complete enough for traffic to begin flowing. Christmas turkeys for the tables of Providence, RI passed over the ND&C tracks between Wicopee and Hopewell that cold December day in 1881.

In January 1882 there was an article in the “Fishkill Journal” about the new ferry named for William T. Hart who was an early president of the NY&NE railroad. It had been built in Philadelphia for use in New York harbor but it was too high to fit under some of the bridges so it was assigned to service between Fishkill Landing and Newburgh. At that time it was the second largest ferry in the world, being 300 feet long and 80 Feet wide. The Hart carried a crew of 24 men. There was a paddle wheel on each side driven by an independent steam engine which required 3 firemen each to shovel coal. By reversing one engine, the Hart could turn around in its own length. The Hart could carry up to 27 freight cars or 18 passenger cars and took about 15 minutes to cross the Hudson River. At that rate, a 50 car freight train took more than an hour to cross the river.

The next few weeks saw a flurry of letters to smooth out operating difficulties. Imagine the situation: here were two railroads trying to run scheduled trains, both passenger and freight, in both directions on one 11-mile section of single track main line between Hopewell Junction and Wicopee Junction. In reading the letterbooks you can almost feel the frustration of the ND&C management in trying to control the situation. Here was a conservative local railroad trying to deal with an invasion of “cowboy” style train crews and still maintain safe operations. The NY&NE crews were moving freight as fast as possible for their company and dealing with a slow traffic bottleneck. There was a marked difference in style between the two roads. In 1882 neither side could know the future outcome, but the same conflicting relationship lasted for over 20 years.

Of all the freight carried by railroads there was probably more coal than any other item. Homes, businesses, industry, steamboats and railroads were all heated or powered by coal. Every small town had at least one coal dealer and sometimes several. In many situations dealers in an area were supplied by different railroads which sometimes involved intense competition or some sort of gentleman’s agreement to maintain prices. Since railroads did not always trust each other or honor the agreements, there was considerable friction and sometimes open hostility in the coal business. This was particularly true after the opening of the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge in 1888, which opened a direct rail route to the coal fields without slow and expensive ferry service across the Hudson River.

Sparks from engine smokestacks were always a problem, but poor maintenance of the stacks and screens made things worse. In the summer of 1882 there were many grass fires along the line. The problem of NY&NE engines starting fires did not go away for very long. There are many letters of complaint to the NY&NE over the years.

Before air brakes came into general use on trains, the crews could often be found walking on top of the freight cars to reach the hand brake wheels while trains were in motion. This of course was a safety hazard especially around bridges and tunnels. One safety measure was called bridge “tell tales“. This was actually a very simple set of ropes hanging down over the tracks a distance before the bridge or tunnel. Anyone on top of a car would be brushed by the ropes as a warning that an obstruction was close at hand. These tell tales became another sore point between the NY&NE and the ND&C. This all came to a head in the spring of 1886 when the NY&NE brakemen were tampering with the ropes while riding on the tops of the cars. Many of the ropes were completely missing and the ND&C management made numerous complaints to the NY&NE.

With the opening of the Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge in December 1888, the NY&NE ferry at Fishkill Landing began to feel the pinch of competition from coal trains rolling across the river into Dutchess County. Ferry service would sometimes come to a halt when the Hudson River ice became too thick in the winter. The Bridge did not have this problem. The Bridge route also was faster without the handling required to get train cars on and off a ferry boat.

The NY&NE faced an even greater challenge in the form of J. P. Morgan and the New Haven Railroad. The two roads were in direct competition in the New England area, and the New Haven began cutting off access to NY&NE business. NY&NE revenues dropped, and J. P. Morgan began acquiring NY&NE stock at low prices. By 1895 he had control of the NY&NE and along with it the Fishkill Landing ferry terminal. The ND&C books began to refer to the NY&NE as the New England Railroad. The change of name and management did not seem to improve their safety record.

The name New England Railroad did not last long. Within three years, in July of 1898, the name was again changed. The ND&C line from Hopewell Junction to Wicopee Junction was then traveled by trains of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, Highland Division. Fishkill Landing operated as part of the New Haven Railroad. A few years later, in June 1904 the New Haven Railroad withdrew all passenger service on the line but continued to handle freight. Later that same summer, the train car ferry was discontinued leaving only the connection with the NYC Hudson Line.

After years of a stormy relationship the NY&NE was no more, and the ND&C survived. But then the ND&C had the giant New Haven Railroad at their door with J. P. Morgan running the show. The New Haven RR would develop the tracks between Connecticut and Hopewell Junction as a major freight route and call it the Maybrook Line. The next link in the chain would be the big railroad bridge in Poughkeepsie opened for traffic in 1889.

The Dutchess County RR completed the route across Dutchess County by building the section from the Poughkeepsie bridge to Hopewell Junction in 1892. The Maybrook Line across the county was then a complete east west route.

This Timetable shows through Pullman sleeper car service that crossed the Poughkeepsie bridge in 1892. The train service ran to Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore and Washington DC. It is a shame that the bridge crossing was after midnight when it would be dark and most people would be sleeping. The view from the train windows would have been spectacular.

The Central New England Railway (CNE) was a railroad across northern Connecticut and west across the Hudson River in New York. It eventually became part of the Poughkeepsie Bridge Route (an alliance between railroads for a passenger route from Washington to Boston) and later a line of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad.

Richard Teed collection

This wreck happened in the Town of Loyd near the west end of the big Poughkeepsie bridge. It seems that a track crew had been installing new heavier rail. When they quit for the day they did not match up the different size rails very well. When #42 came along a flange picked the joint and derailed the locomotive and train. Engineer William Prince was killed and fireman Wicklow was injured. Six cars of the train were wrecked.

The tall smokestack in the background was for the New Paltz & Wallkill Valley trolley line power plant.

What is a Social Supply Chain?

Social supply chain is using "social media technology" all across the entire supply chain : from supplier's suppliers to customer's customers. It means integration of social media technologies (collaboration, sharing) to connect and encompass the participants across the whole supply chain.

The customer-facing side of companies is getting busier. Customers use social media to connect with their peers from a marketing standpoint to promote and advertise their services and capabilities. Social media is now particularly important in customer service environments. Consumers are able to communicate with customer service departments through Twitter and Facebook.
