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.
Robert Young and the New York Central Railroad
Robert Young. The New York Central Railroad. Some of the most fascinating railroad literature of the 1940's are transcripts of this unusual man's testimony before the Interstate Commerce Commission. At year-end 1943, New York Central closed at 18 , which meant Delaware and Hudson Railroad had an investment of $5,711,250.
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'. Now it is on its way back as a pedestrian and bike bridge.
New York Central Railroad Stations
All the great train stations of the New York Central System. Grand Central Terminal, Buffalo Central Terminal, Utica Union Station, Albany, Syracuse, Rochester, Cleveland, Detroit, Chicago, Indianapolis, Harmon, Beacon, Oneonta, Saranac Lake, Malone, and others.

The Lake Ontario Shore Railroad
In the early 1870's, the Lake Ontario Shore Railroad had been built from Oswego all the way along the shore of Lake Ontario to the Niagara River (Suspension Bridge). It bypassed Rochester, had no manufacturing industries and was too close to the New York Central. The Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg bought it. Then the RWO was acquired by the NY Central.
