CNE Bus Tour Rudberg Research Collection of the Central New England Railway. Dates: 2002-2011.

Dates: 2002-2010.
Quantity: .75 linear feet.
Abstract: The collection consists of tour guidebooks compiled by Bernard L. Rudberg of photocopies of photographs, maps, correspondence, and documents related to the history of the Central New England Railway, which ran from Maybrook, New York, to Hartford, Connecticut, in the period between 1898 and 1927, at which point it was taken over by the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad. Mr. Rudberg creates the books for the participants of an annual guided bus tour he coordinates, in April or May of each year beginning in 2002, that follows portions of the old railway line, and provides information about the towns on the route, train wrecks that occurred, old carbarns, turntables and roundhouses, and such features as the Poughkeepsie River Bridge.

First bridge at West Glenham

First bridge at West Glenham.



Running eastbound from Matteawan, the next station stop was Glenham. In Glenham the tracks crossed the Fishkill creek in two places. The bridge at West Glenham was replaced at least twice over the life of the line. This photo shows the first bridge over Fishkill Creek at West Glenham. These original D&C RR bridges were not strong enough for the heavier locomotives and trains that the NY&NE RR began running on the line in 1881.

This much stronger bridge was built in 1894 at West Glenham to handle the heavier locomotives and trains of the NY&NE RR.
Third bridge at West Glenham

In later years, this concrete arch bridge replaced the steel bridge at West Glenham. This bridge is still in service but there is little traffic on the line. Metro North RR is saving the line for possible future use as a commuter route.

Join the New Haven Railroad Forum
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.

The newspaper story says that two stock cars of sheep on the train accompanied by two Englishmen who were asleep at the time. What a rude awakening.

This siding into a factory in Glenham had such a sharp bend at the far end that locomotives could not make the turn. A team of oxen was used to pull each car across the bridge.

The large white building was the Bordens Creamery. Beyond the creamery you can just make out the Hopewell Junction station and crossing tower. The double track Maybrook line crossed between the tower and the station.

This photo was taken 6 years after the Poughkeepsie RR bridge fire. There was little train traffic and three years later the tracks were removed in 1983. In 1986 there was a fire in the station that did a lot of smoke a charring damage. Hopewell Depot Restoration Inc is currently working to restore the station into a small museum and educational facility. It is the last remaining railroad building in Hopewell Junction.

Welcome to Hopewell Depot Restoration Corp.


One of our members has created a Facebook Page about the Hopewell Depot Restoration.
The Hopewell Depot Restoration project also has a new web site.
I have been working on local railroad history since I retired from IBM 20 years ago. I have posted several hundred photos and stories about Hudson Valley railroads on a CNE web site. This web site has 23 sections. Just scroll down and select the section you want. If you have any questions or comments just send me a note.
In addition I did about an hour of video for a Marist College oral history project. About 6 minutes of my video session is in the "construction" section. Portions of this interview are now recorded for phone access as narration for the Walkway Over the Hudson web site. A number of photos from my collection are now being used on the interpretive signs on the Walkway.
Since my family background is in railroads in Sweden, I have always been interested in railroads and since I retired I have had time to study more. I am also the former president of a group working to restore our local Hopewell Junction train station into a small museum and educational facility.
I am also one of the organizers for the Central New England Railway Historical Tours. Every spring we tour a section of the old CNE Rwy with two bus loads of railroad fans. I do the navigating and narration for the tour. I have written the guide books for the last eight tours and I am working on the next one for spring 2012. Each book contains around 200 pages of photos and history for that section. Next spring's tour is now in the planning stages and will probably be in the area between Norfolk and Canaan CT.
I found the original record books of the ND&C RR at the Beacon Historical Society. The ND&C RR became part of the CNE Rwy in 1905. There are more than 30,000 pages of original railroad records. I wrote a book based on those records. It is called ND&C RR Twenty Five Years on the ND&C. It still available from the publisher and several local bookstores. I have also written a book of photos and stories about Hopewell Junction and East Fishkill which we are selling as a fund raiser for the Hopewell Depot Restoration.

Required Attire for a Remote Workforce



Ever wonder how your telecommuting colleagues really live? Turns out, many of them actually do work in their pajamas. They also tend to love their work-life balance – to the point where they’d take a pay cut to maintain the status quo. This is a “must read” for both remote workers and for their office-bound managers.
