This book, over double the length of the first edition, extensively covers the history of the Rahway Valley Railroad from 1897 to 1950. With hundreds of newly-discovered photographs and documents, this thoroughly-researched book traces the railroad from its inception as the New York & New Orange Railroad until the last full year of steam locomotive operations.
Utilizing the collections of Steamtown National Historic Site, the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, the New Jersey State Archives, and several collectors and individuals, author Richard J. King has compiled the definitive work on this colorful little railroad. This book includes recollections of employees, rare photographs, and information from previously unpublished documents. It is the first in a series which will extensively chronicle the story of the Rahway Valley Railroad for the first time on record.
