East of the Hudson River, Chatham, NY was once an epicenter of railroad activity with lines radiating in all four directions. This book covers the New York Central’s Boston and Albany and Harlem Divisions activity at Chatham and vicinity from 1955 to 1968. Then came Penn Central from 1968 to 1974 and Conrail from 1974 to 1999. Eventually, the beginning of the CSX era appeared from 1999 to 2007. This book also offers a glimpse into the last days of service to Chatham by the Rutland Railroad.
There are over 150 Color photographs, maps and and photographs of memorabilia from that time period. The book is about 2/3 NYCS and the rest of the book is the railroads that followed. With the history in outstanding color photos of D.R. (Bob) McCulloch and the author, we view the action as it was happening through the years.
