"NEW YORK, SUSQUEHANNA & WESTERN RAILROAD IN NEW JERSEY" BOOK IS AVAILABLE


Originally incorporated in 1881, the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad has had a long history in New Jersey. The railroad expanded by the early 1890s into the thriving Pennsylvania coalfields and eventually grew to over 200 miles of trackage in the northern portion of New Jersey. Always viewed as an underdog in a marketplace surrounded by much larger railroads, the New York, Susquehanna & Western emerged from 40 years of Erie Railroad control; survived several bankruptcies, reorganizations, abandonments, and retrenchments through innovative passenger and freight service offerings; and transformed into today's regional rail carrier with a size far greater than ever imagined. Noted author, historian and Maywood Station Historical Committee president Edward S. Kaminski has assembled a wealth of images, most of which have never appeared in print, showcasing the history of the original lines served by the New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad. The 128-page book Arcadia Publishing Company is illustrated with over 200 quality photographs with detailed captions. "New York, Susquehanna & Western Railroad in New Jersey" will provide the reader with a visual journey into this historic railroad's past. The book is available for $22.00 each at Maywood Station on Museum Open House dates or by mail order on our Museum Store Page. All proceeds go to further preservation and maintenance of the historic Maywood Station Museum.
