History of the New York Central System
Aaron E. Klein (au). Tells the story of an amazingly long-lived & vigorous railroad that grew into a far-flung network that stretched as far west as Chicago. Along its rails raced the 20th Century Limited -- the train that became a byword for speed & luxury. But it is also the story of the frantic mergers of the late 19th century, the cutthroat competition between the great railroad barons, & the historic distrust between the state capital of Albany & NY City. Despite the roadblocks posed by politicians, & competition from both the Erie Canal & the state turnpike, the NY Central flourished for well over a century -- until the decline that led to its merger with the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1968. 100+ rare & colorful photos.
