The Mighty O&W, New York City to the Great Lakes
The New York, Ontario & Western Railroad. It wound its way thru New York State and missed most of the population centers. It went away in 1957. Could it have survived? What happened to it? What remains of it?
CONRAIL: Where it came from, Where it went
What companies made it to Conrail and what didn't? Not just the big companies like Penn Central, but little ones like Niagara Junction, Buffalo Creek. We even cover those that did not make it to Conrail, like the New York and Harlem.
A Chicago Bypass is all about getting railroad freight around Chicago instead of going through Chicago (with the resulting delays and pollution). Lots on car pollution in Chicago. Lots of energy saved.
Old Railroads of Connecticut
From 1844 to 1967, the New Haven RR was a force in New England. Well over a century ago, the Farmington Canal was converted to a railroad. Eventually it became a part of the New Haven. Naugatuck Line to Winstead. Abandoned railroads in Connecticut. Coverage of Central New England, Naugatuck, Boston, Hartford and Danbury Line.
Milk Trains of the New York Central
Important milk trains on the NY Central started in upstate New York and wound their way to New York City (mostly West Side Freight Line. Others connected with the Rutland Railroad and came down the Harlem Division to New York City. More came off the Catskill Mountain Branch and West Shore.
