Forgotten Railroads Through Westchester
An all-new volume from Robert A. Bang! Along with
co-authors John E. Frank, George W. Kowanski,
and Otto M. Vondrak, join us as we explore the
New York Central's Putnam Division, the Getty Square Branch,
the New York, Westchester & Boston, the New
Haven's pioneering electrification program, as well as some
long-forgotten ghost railroads and trolley lines of upper Westchester. A thoroughly-researched and profusely illustrated volume not to be missed. Cover painting by well-known painter and illustrator Mitch Markovitz.
Robert Bang's first book about the New York, Westchester & Boston Railway contains many rare photographs documenting the construction, operation, and dismantling of this once-great transportation system. Includes many "before-and-after" photos comparing scenes along the Westchester yesterday and today. DEALERS:Inquire about quantity discounts.
The New York, Westchester & Boston Railway:
J. P. Morgan's Magnificent Mistake By Herbert H. Harwood, Jr.
Unrecorded millions, paid out for unknown reasons, raised the Westchester's construction total to a breathtaking $2 million a mile, almost $40 million a mile in 2005 dollars. Yet this railroad, designed to carry more than 100,000 people a day efficiently and comfortably, ran through virtually undeveloped territory and duplicated the line of the parent company that built it. Due to woeful financial performances and failure to show a profit, the Westchester trains stopped running within 25 years of their christening.
