A CNE train at the new Beacon station

A CNE train at the new Beacon station.



Beacon Historical Society collection

The new road bridge is in use and the old road bridge is gone. The fence in the center shows where the old bridge was. The new steel bridge will also be replaced in later years. The ferry lunch seems to be back in business just to the right of the ferry building.

There is a CNE train backed up to the new station. You can see a wisp of steam from the locomotive just to the right of the road bridge. To the right, behind the tree, between the platforms there is also a NYC train in the station.

The white building at left that used to be the Hammond building now has a new sign. It is now The National Oven Company, manufacturers of baker’s ovens. I wonder what happened to all the paint and insecticide that used to be in that building. Even though the ferry has moved away from the point, that road still seems to be in use at the upper left.

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.

The "Maybrook Line" was important to New England before the advent of Penn Central and before the Poughkeepsie Bridge burned.

By early 1915 the new alignment for the New York Central main line was well underway. In this photo you can see the old line at left and the construction on the new at right. In the background you can see the new higher road bridge and the old road bridge still in use. If you look carefully you can see a horse on the old road bridge at the far left.

Teams of horses coming off the ferry had to face a tough climb up the hill to Beacon. Animal rights groups were active in trying to get the owners to lighten the loads instead of beating the horses. In the lower right corner you can see the stub of the trolley tracks that used to go out to the old ferry landing on the point.
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.

Several years ago I wrote a story on the major railroads of 1950 and what happened to them.

Now I am following up with a closer examination of the New York Central Railroad. This railroad only lasted until 1968 when it merged into Penn Central.

But, what was the NY Central Railroad like in 1950?

The new combined NYC and CNE station took shape in the summer of 1915 even before the tracks were re-aligned. I would bet that this yard was a muddy mess during any summer rain storms.

The new road bridge crosses the NYC main line in the center. Just above the road bridge is the station area with the CNE tracks ending at the building. To the left of the station is the double ferry dock. The old ferry dock on the point is still in place but not used. In the lower left corner is the former NY&NE dock area used for river boat and barge freight.

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.
Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

Railroads On The Rebound

Over the last 50+ years, railroads have changed a lot. Now they are about to change again.

It is all about a combination of economic factors and climate factors.

Since 1950 , railroads have consolidated. Freight moved from a "box car mentality" to a "unit train,mentality". Passenger went from a robust business to a "caretaker" arrangement called AMTRAK. This happened as everybody could drive for free on the Interstate Highway System or fly on an airline system where the government subsidized both airlines and airports. In the meantime, railroad express and railroad post offices went "down the tubes". The old Post Office Department and the Railway Express Agency could not adjust to the new way. UPS and Fex Ex could.
Carbon Calculator
What's the most environmentally-friendly way to transport goods? The answer is freight rail. The EPA estimates that every ton-mile of freight that moves by rail instead of by highway reduces greenhouse emissions by two-thirds. But what does that really mean? Our easy-to-use carbon calculator will estimate the amount of carbon dioxide that can be prevented from entering our environment just by using freight rail instead of trucks. We'll even tell you how many seedlings you'd need to plant to have the same effect.

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.
