The New York Central Railroad rivaled the Pennsylvania Railroad and was organized by the Commodore . A new form of business organization An enterprise as costly as building a railroad demanded more money than any one individual could invest.
The New York Central Railroad rivaled the Pennsylvania Railroad and was organized by the Commodore Cornelius Vanderbilt. The New York Central Railroad went from New York City to Albany and Buffalo and then from Buffalo to both Cleveland and Chicago as well as to Indianapolis and the Ohio Railroad. The other two trunk lines included the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad (previous slide) and the Erie Railroad.
For decades the New York Central reigned as one of Americas most important railroads. Beginning with the 1853 consolidation of a group of fledgling railways that formed a route from Buffalo to Albany, the New York Central grew into a powerhouse transportation company with more than 10,000 route miles. This illustrated history of the railroad that grew to power under the Vanderbilt dynasty covers every aspect of the New York Central through its 1968 merger with longtime rival Pennsylvania Railroad and the eventual merger of Penn Centrals successor, Conrail, into Norfolk Southern and CSX. Along the way, readers are treated to a selection of archival photographs, commissioned route maps, period ads, and timetables detailing all of New York Centrals operations--steam and diesel, freight and passenger--not to mention associated icons like Grand Central Terminal, the legendary Henry Dreyfuss shrouded Hudson steam locomotives, the Water Level Route, and the 20th Century Limited passenger trains. Prolific railway author Brian Solomon sources 150 evocative photographs, promotional materials, and postcards not included in the previous edition to deliver a nostalgic and colorful look at the New York Central. In addition, there are four specially commissioned maps.
