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.

One of the railroads that made up the Central New England Railway was the Poughkeepsie & Connecticut

The P&C Railroad


The P&E Railroad had been in operation about 16 years before the big RR bridge in Poughkeepsie was completed in 1888. The bridge company had intentions of acquiring the P&E RR to connect eastward across Dutchess County to reach railroads in Connecticut. By the time the big bridge across the Hudson River was completed, the P&E had been renamed PH&B and then NY&M. The management of NY&M would not sell the railroad to the bridge company. To get around this problem, the bridge company built a 28 mile long railroad parallel to the NY&M and called it the P&C, Poughkeepsie & Connecticut. This new line ran from the bridge in Poughkeepsie northeastward bypassing most of the towns served by the NY&M. It did however serve Stanfordville and Pine Plains. North of Pine Plains, the P&C went into Columbia County and connected to the R&C RR at Silvernails to reach Connecticut. Small communities like McIntyre, Stissing and Pine Plains then had three railroads, the ND&C, the NY&M and the P&C.

There were places along the line where the two competing railroads were only a few feet apart. They actually crossed at two points. The P&C passed over the rival NY&M on a bridge at McIntyre. Near Salt Point they crossed in an open field. At Stissing the lines ran only a few feet apart through a narrow valley.

By 1907 both lines had been consolidated into the CNE Rwy. Shortly after the CNE gained control, a new rail connector was built in Pine Plains. This was a short S curve of tracks connecting the NY&M ( now back to P&E ) to the P&C line to Silvernails. After the connector was built the CNE abandoned the P&C line south of Pine Plains. The P&C had lasted barely twenty years from 1889 to 1909.

Join the Abandoned Railroads 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 former P&C roadbed crosses the Taconic Parkway just south of Hibernia Rd. About a quarter mile east the P&C crossed the Wappingers Creek on this trestle. The trestle is gone but the stone abutments are still there.

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.

ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration


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.
