Abandoned Railroads: West Shore, New York State and Other .

All about abandoned Railroads. A lot about the West Shore. Other abandonments in New York State and elsewhere in the Eastern US.

Webb's Wilderness Railroad

. Webb's Wilderness Railroad opened up the Adirondack wilderness. Although educated as a physician, William Seward Webb built two hundred miles of railroad and opened up the Adirondack wilderness where others had failed. New York Central tracks reached into the Adirondacks. One line even went across the Canadian border to Ottawa.

. All about the Boston & Maine railroad. Where it went; when it was built; what happened to it.

New York Central's Castleton Cutoff

. The New York Central's Castleton Cutoff, Hudson River Connecting Railroad, and the Selkirk Yard.

Catskill Mountain Branch

. The Catskill Mountain Branch of the New York Central connected with the West Shore at Kingston, NY. It was once the Ulster & Delaware.

Commuters, Car Culture and the Jenny Plan

. Most railroad passengers today are commuters. Taxpayers underwrite part of this cost and the ride is now more comfortable and the future more secure than ever before. Many ideas have been brought up over the years to ease commuting problems from New Jersey. One of the most interesting was a 1935 proposal by L. Alfred Jenny which consisted of a modern electrified railroad connecting the various New Jersey railroads and bringing these lines into a new passenger terminal in mid-Manhattan. Public Support of Private Railroads. The greatest economic factor of the 19th Century was the railroads. Public money helped them then and it could help them now. A real story for this era is how General Motors, Ford and Chrysler reshaped American ground transportation to serve their corporate wants instead of social needs.

Train Stations of Connecticut

. There are many train stations in Connecticut. Some have been rebuilt. Some are no longer used and have been converted to other uses. Some have restaurants in them or close by. Some even have trains stopping at them.

EMD Model 40; a rare early diesel locomotive

. Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of GM is famous as a major US locomotive builder since the 1940's. Except for 2 demonstrators DH1 & DH2, the only real commercial small locomotive venture was the Model 40, introduced in 1940.

Grand Central Terminal and the New York City Subway System

. In April 1987, the former New York Central office building was designated a landmark. Other buildings in the area have played an important role in the development of New York City. An electrical fire in 1986 knocked out the signal tower which controls the lower level of Grand Central Terminal. Article based on a column by NEW YORK NEWSDAY reporter Jim Dwyer. A look at what has gone wrong with the subways since 1940. New York City's Transit Museum held a panel discussion on the merits of various types of subway maps. To kill an hour in New York City, try a subway ride. Also stories about the NYC marine fleet and detective Moe Holstein.

Railroads from Albany to Connecticut

. Railroads through the region East of the Hudson from Albany to Connecticut. Includes the rail junction of Chatham (New York Central, Boston & Albany and Rutland ) and the New York Central Harlem Division. The New York & Harlem Railroad Company, founded in 1831, is responsible for $7.8 million in (redeemable in gold) 3 ½ bonds due in the year 2043. These bonds are legally secured by the 127-mile right-of-way from New York City to Chatham AND by GRAND CENTRAL TERMINAL! Currently, these borrowings are rated "Baa1" by Moody's (not too bad since Penn Central seems to have sold off some of this property).

New York Central Electric Shops at Harmon

. Harmon was a New York Central-created community and came into existence because it was a logical point to be the outer limit of the electric zone.

Big 4 Bridge: Jeffersonville to Louisville

The Big Four Bridge fell into disuse after the Big Four Railroad's parent company, the New York Central Railroad, was merged into the Penn Central in 1968. The Big Four Bridge's former traffic was then routed over Louisville's Fourteenth Street Bridge. By 1969 both approach spans had been removed and sold for scrap. As a result, the Big Four Bridge became the first Louisville bridge to fall out of use, and gained the nickname "Bridge That Goes Nowhere".

Just Around the Corner
by Bertrande Snell

(Excerpt from an article essentially about the intensity of the heat wave at the time).

"Whatdaddye mean - hot?" snorted Denny Haley, the erstwhile, politically-minded Hojacker. "boy, when I was alderman, I could make the north side (of Syracuse) hotter'n this right in the middle of a blizzard. Why, look, son; when I was railroadin' on the Hojack - that was when they used to have the hot days - and I don't mean of course.

"Why, I remember one day in latest August of 1904, i was flaggin' on the local freight from Salina to Richland; and when I hopped the caboose at 6 a.m. it was already so hot you couldn't put your hand on the grab iron without raisn' a blister. By the time we got to Central Square that mornin', Barney Fidler, the fireman, didn't have much to do after he banked the fire.

"He took on a full tanko' water at Brewerton and the sun beat down on the engine on the engine tank so fierce that by the time we got through Hungry Lane cut, she was bilin' like all get out. All Barney had to do was set there an' work his injector, lettin' the water run from the tank into the boiler. Yep, that sure was a hot day.

"Why, wen we got to Richland, old man Butts an' his clerk, Schwartz had organized a picnic. There they set, in the shade of th' ash pit, stuffin' themselves with grilled frog-legs, by Judas!"

'Where'd they get'em, Denny?" I foolishly asked.

"Well, I just been tellin' you how hot it was, and in them days there was considerable of a yard at Richland, with a lot o' switches to throw; an' I'll be teetotally swizzled if the sun hadn't roasted every frog on every switch in th' yard...Yep, that was a hot day, son - so long call me again."

-And I softly and reverently laid the receiver in its cradle and walked away on tip-toe.

Just Around the Corner
By Bertrande Snell

First Lieut. Robert F. Harding (U.S.A., retired) writes from Marblehead, Mass.:

"Would like to add my comments to the letters written about your stories of the old Hojack and adjacent territory. My interest in the Hojack is that my father started railroading out of Cape Vincent about 1886, as a brakeman. Later he went firing and became an engineer there; but in 1891 he joined up with the New York, Ontario & Western. When he resigned in 1910, he was the third man on the engineers' seniority list.

"I am not a railroad man, but I take a great interest in the two roads mentioned above. Perhaps you may remember my brother, Jerry, who was a telegrapher in Oswego for many years.

"He picked up the code at Valley Mills on the O&W, later became agent at Liberty Falls; but finally quit railroading and worked for The Associated Press in Buffalo for many years.

"Your write-ups are forwarded to me by a sister, who is a school teacher in Oneida, and by a cousin living in Oswego...I will look for more write-ups."

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?

Railroad Station at Troy, New York

Railroad Station at Troy, New York

The station in Troy was owned by the Troy Union Rail Road. The TURR lasted from the mid 19th Century till the mid 20th Century. It was owned by the New York Central, Delaware & Hudson and Boston & Maine. Access from the South was from Rensselaer; from the West, via the Green Island Bridge; from the North was street running almost the entire length of Troy. See Penney's blog for more information (and a great movie from the 1950's).

The station consisted of 6 thru tracks and towers at each end. Tahawus: Railroad to a Mine, Does it have a Future?

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.

The Maybrook Line across Dutchess County The "Maybrook Line" was important to New England before the advent of Penn Central and before the Poughkeepsie Bridge burned. This piece of the railroad carried freight from Maybrook Yard, across the Poughkeepsie Bridge to Hopewell Junction where it joined a line from Beacon. The railroad then went to Brewster, then Danbury, and finally to Cedar Hill Yard in New Haven.
