Connecticut Motor Coach Museum 128 pages softcover Arcadia

By 1908 Hartford had an extensive system of streetcar lines radiating from the city in all directions. The Hartford division of the Connecticut Company totaled more than one hundred twenty-five miles of track for streetcars, the dominant mode of public transportation in central Connecticut. One could take a car to New Britain, Stafford Springs, or all the way to Springfield, Massachusetts. By the 1920s, the lighter density streetcar lines were no longer lucrative and the system was converted to a motor coach operation; by the early 1930s, the automobile had replaced the streetcar as the favored mode of transport. The advent of automobile transportation eventually led to the closing of all the Hartford streetcar lines in July 1941. Hotel1

HEAD ON - BRITISH COLUMBIA'S DEADLIEST RAILWAY ACCIDENT Regularly $25.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2018 or while supplies last.

Mark Wilson 168 pages hardcover

A 22-year-old Canadian National Railways telegrapher was blamed for a violent collision between a transcontinental passenger train and a troop train on Nov. 21, 1950. The head-on crash caused 21 deaths and was British Columbia's deadliest railway accident. The alleged culprit was charged with manslaughter and was very fortunate to be defended by a future Prime Minister of Canada, who gave a bravura courtroom performance. The not guilty verdict returned by jurors was an indirect smack at CNR, which was touched with corporate arrogance even while being on the governmental welfare roll. Hotel1

Edward Kaminski 128 pages softcover Arcadia

Originally settled by Dutch farmers in the 1600s, the borough of Maywood experienced population and industrial growth in the late 1800s with the coming of the railroad. New Jersey Midland Railway, predecessor to the New York, Susquehanna and Western Railroad, arrived in 1872, a time when Maywood consisted mainly of farmland. Maywood was incorporated in 1894, when the railroad expanded into the Pennsylvania coalfields. The railroad provided the means for transportation of people, goods, and services, and Maywood grew measurably with it into the 20th century. Today the borough has developed into a suburb of such iconic cities as New York City, Paterson, Passaic, and Hackensack, while still retaining its character and charm. Motor1

MORRIS COUNTY TRACTION COMPANY Regularly $27.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2018 or while supplies last.

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.

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.

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

NORTH EASTERN RAILWAY IN THE FIRST WORLD WAR Regularly $24.75 On sale until Feb 15th, 2018 or while supplies last.

Rob Langham 208 pages softcover

The North Eastern Railway underwent extreme change after the outbreak of war in August 1914. Within months, the company raised its own battalion of men and was the only railway company to do so. The NER also set to work adapting to the changes and requirements the war would bring. Not only would there be a drop in regular passenger traffic levels and increase in freight, transporting both war material and troops, but the workshops formerly used to build locomotives were turned over to making weapons of war. In December 1914, the railway came under attack from the Imperial German Navy, causing damage to the NER's infrastructure and killing several of its men. As the war went on, locomotives and rolling stock were sent to France to help with the enormous logistics required for operations on the Western Front. The planned opening of an electrified railway line for freight went ahead with a brand new fleet of powerful electric locomotives, adding to the company's portfolio of electrification with the electrified Tyneside passenger line and Newcastle Quayside. NER land was used to build an enormous munitions factory at Darlington and the unprecedented use of women in the work place meant traditionally male-only roles were increasingly seeing women take over and freeing men for military service. Overseas, men of the NER that joined the forces served with honor, but many were not to come home. The North Eastern Railway in the First World War tells the story of one railway's war, of how it continued to operate and adapt, and the men and women who served with the company or left to fight for the country's freedom.

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 resumed on November 23, 1957, only to keep the overhead wire and track free of ice during the harsh Canadian winter. 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. The aging and decaying streetcar system was put to the test. This truly was the Ottawa streetcar "Last Great Stand". All of the illustrations within this publication were taken on August 27 & 28, 1958 by a Baltimore, Maryland tourist who traveled to Ottawa for the exhibition. He captured this last stand on high quality Kodak film, Those images are presented in this publication for your enjoyment. Less then 5 months after the 1958 exhibition ended, abandonment of Ottawa streetcar routes began with the last revenue run occurring on May 1, 1959. Oscar1

Take a ride on the Coaster in San Diego, MetroLink in Los Angeles, Amtraks Surfliner Rail to Rail in Southern California, San Franciscos Caltrain, the Altamont Commuter Express between San Jose and Stockton, Amtraks Capitol Corridor between San Jose and Sacramento, the Sounder in Seattle and the West Coast Express in Vancouver. New Tri-Met service in Portland is scheduled to start in September, 2008; and there are visions for service in Anchorage, Alaska. Rail fans, modelers, transportation planners, and folks living in the new rail service areas can use this book for travel, transit planning, modeling and new levels of knowledge about passenger rail service.
