MORRIS COUNTY TRACTION COMPANY Larry Lowenthal & William Greenberg Jr 136 pages softcover

THRIVING prosperous communities in Morris and Union Counties, New Jersey, presented an attractive target during the trolley mania that swept America early in the 20th Century. Backed by prominent individuals in the area, the Morris County Traction Co. was formed to serve this population. Its first trolley car rumbled through Dover on a glorious day in 1904, but after that it took more than ten years to complete the system. Eventually, the company operated about 50 miles of lines, extending from Lake Hopatcong and Boonton through Dover, Morristown, Summit and other communities to Union and Maplewood, with connections to Elizabeth and Newark. The mature MCT was typical of the entire electric railway industry: it strove to provide good, dependable service, but soon found itself engaged in an endless battle to survive against a multitude of threats. Although its cars transported over seven million passengers a year-workers, shoppers, school children and postmen-it was finally worn down by industry-wide problems and the proliferation of automobiles and gave up the struggle in 1928. The failure of the MCT provides a vivid example of how events of the 1920s wiped out an enormous investment in electric railways and shaped the transportation system and the human landscape we see today.

NASHVILLE, CHATTANOOGA & ST. LOUIS RY HISTORY & STEAM LOCOS Richard Prince 196 pages Hardcover

Railroad buffs, historians, and casual readers alike will be delighted by the reappearance of Richard E. Prince's Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Railway. It was originally published in 1967, and its reputation as the foremost work on this railroad is still unchallenged. The NC&StL Railway originated in 1845 as the Nashville and Chattanooga RR. Taken over by the Union Army during the Civil War, it suffered extensive damage from Confederate attack but was rebuilt and operated by the U.S. Military Railroad for over two years. Returned to its owners in September 1865, it became the Nashville, Chattanooga & St. Louis Ry. in 1873, after absorbing the Nashville & Northwestern RR. During the next 25 years, it became known to the public first as the Tennessee Line, then as the Lookout Mountain Route. In 1890 it gained entrance into Atlanta as lessee of the state-owned Western & Atlantic RR. Paducah and Memphis were reached in 1896, when lines of the former Paducah, Tennessee & Alabama RR were leased from L&N. At its zenith in the 1920s, it operated approximately 1,259 miles of track, from the Mississippi and Ohio rivers through Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama, to Atlanta, Georgia. In 1880, to eliminate the threat of competition that was developing between the two companies, the Louisville & Nashville RR acquired control of the NC&StL Ry., much to the dismay of the citizens of Nashville, and for the next 77 years it operated as a prosperous subsidiary of the Old Reliable. It was actually absorbed by the L&N organization in 1957 to become part of the Nashville and W&A divisions. But it will always be remembered by the people of Tennessee and Georgia as the original Dixie Line_the route of such Chicago-Florida passenger trains as the Dixie Flyer, Dixie Limited, Dixie Express, Dixie Mail, Dixieland, Dixie Flagler, and Dixiana. Maps, schedules, rosters, diagrams, and hundreds of photographs supplement historical information on the company and technical information on the trains.

NEW LONDON COUNTY (CT) TROLLEYS Connecticut Motor Coach Museum 128 pages softcover Arcadia

Railroads were instrumental to the growth of industry in America. Streetcar systems branched off from railroad lines, extending transportation to urban and rural areas not otherwise accessible. The expansion of the trolley system in New London County also revitalized industry in the area. By the 1860s, the number of farms in Connecticut had begun to decline, and the need for reliable, reasonable transportation to towns and cities increased. The Norwich Horse Railroad, incorporated in 1864, was followed by various other trolley companies, including the Norwich Street Railway Company, the New London Horse Railroad, the New London Street Railway, and the Montville Horse Railway. Trolley transportation was finally electrified in 1889, fueling the expansion of trolley networks in Norwich and New London. The increase in trolley service allowed the textile industry to grow by expanding access to a sufficient workforce. The system also worked in reverse, enabling city dwellers to escape to the country for outings. November1

Sunday streetcar service, with the exception of the Britannia route, was replaced by buses on July 14th, 1957. On September 1, 1957, bus service was extended to Saturdays and Sundays, including the Britannia route.

Weekend streetcar service was once again suspended on April 12, 1958. The age of the Ottawa streetcar was quickly coming to an end. During the 1958 Central Canada Exhibition, August 22-30, 1958, the streetcar system moved thousands of fairgoers on scheduled and extra runs.

RAILWAYS AT WAR John Westwood 224 pages hardcover

This military history of railroads is superbly written, marvelously organized and jam packed with fascinating details. It clearly and cogently explains the various strategic and tactical roles played by railroads in numerous military campaigns. It describes the ways in which the use of railroads facilitated the advent of modern, total war. John Westwood penetratingly examines the origins and evolution of military railroading. His story starts in the 1830s, when the Prussian General Staff carried out the first studies of the practical military uses of railways. He reveals the intriguing fact that it took the Great Powers a surprisingly long time to realize how valuable railways could be in war. They were troubled by the possibility that both sides in a conflict could employ rail power. It was argued well into the late 19th Century that troops might be stranded if the lines int he rear were destroyed by opposing forces and leaders couldn't determine who would run the railroads in wartime, the owners or the government. Mr Westwood shows how events int he United States made European indecisiveness on the matter largely academic. The American Civil War is presented as the first historical demonstration of the critical importance of railways in war. The inability of the Confederacy to replace its demolished rail lines is identified as a major reason for the South's defeat. Despite this graphic example, military planners took decades to discover the utility of even such basic aspects of military railroading as armored trains and rail transport to carry the wounded to the rear. And yet by the First World War, railroads were and integral part of Warfare. Railways at War is filled with vivid and provocative vignettes amplifying and Concretizing the author's insights on the development of military railroading. For instance, he recounts that in 1914 the grip of the railway timetable was so dominant a factor in all military planning that the German Kaiser was told it would be impossible to halt mobilization once it had been authorized, because the trains would be thrown out of joint. Mr Westwood persuasively maintains that the coming of railways had almost as profound an effect on the waging of war as the introduction of gunpowder, that the ability to mobilize and support millions, nit just thousands, of men in the field was the hallmark of total war that rail transport made possible. He supports his contention with colorful and convincing coverage of all the railways wars through the Second World War and carries his analysis into the contemporary era. His readable and carefully illustrated book is an essential addition to the library of every railroad enthusiast and student of military history. Romeo1

The Powell Street lines have been the subject of much controversy through the years, due to a complex lineage of private and public ownership. Among the story's twists and turns are the line's actual routes following the 1906 earthquake, which caused heavy damage and forced major repairs. The Powell lines were taken over by the city in 1944, but the mayor tried to abandon them in 1947. The public disapproved of this move, and since then the Powell Street line has only grown in stature and its importance to San Francisco. Sierra1
