DAYTON & TROY ELECTRIC RAILWAY Scott Trostel 94 pages softcover

As the 20th century opened, so did the rapid rise of interest in the systems of mass transit along the northern Miami Valley. It was a sign of progress right along side the invention and use of electric generation. It was in 1888 that the progressive industrialists at Piqua first conceived the idea of an electric street railway, which was virtually unheard of. The idea was pressed forward and from it came the Piqua Electric Railway, who began operation along the streets of the City of Piqua in 1890. Then in 1892 the same group devised the idea to connect the Cities of Piqua and Troy via a second company, the Miami Valley Railway. It too was successful, opening in 1893. By 1901 proposals were announced almost weekly for the formation of an interurban railway to run through Miami County. It was a group of Dayton businessmen who finally brought reality to the list of proposed electric railways when they began constructing The Dayton & Troy Electric Railway, to connect the City of Dayton with the City of Troy along the Great Miami River Corridor. At Troy it connected with the Miami Valley Railway, this assuring electric railway transportation from Piqua all the way to Dayton. The enterprise of the D & T Electric Railway leased the Miami Valley Railway in 1902 thus providing seamless service via a single operator and thus began 30 years of continuous passenger operations and an even stronger freight and package delivery business, the like of which have never been repeated. This is the story of a small electric railway line that was at least 100 years ahead of its time Delta1

DAYTON & WESTERN TRACTION COMPANY Scott Trostel 94 pages softcover

The Dayton and Western Traction Company was built from Dayton, Ohio, to Richmond, Indiana, by Dayton capitalists. It was originally an under-planned and under-financed line. After the Winter's family of Dayton, Ohio, purchased the line in 1899, and paid for construction of its extension from Eaton, Ohio to Richmond, Indiana, it became a high successful enterprise. It quickly moving from a passenger carrying conveyance to a major freight and express hauler, not just connecting Dayton with Richmond, but Columbus to Indianapolis and with other connecting lines, plus the states of Ohio and Indiana and beyond. It was leased to the Ohio Electric Railway in 1907 and was the key line connecting the vast O. E. to its counterpart, the Terre Haute, Indianapolis & Eastern Traction Company at Richmond, Indiana. It was taken back by the Winters family in 1920 and rebuilt, but times caught up with it. It was managed by the Cincinnati & Lake Erie Railroad from 1931 to 1936, and finally closed by the Indiana Railroad in 1937. It was one of the finest lines to operate in Ohio. 96 photos. Delta1

DELAWARE VALLEY RAILWAY 1901-1937 Michelle Beljean and John Jacques 128 pages sofcover

From 1901 to 1937, the lone engine of the Delaware Valley Railway chugged up and down its solitary track, from the Stroudsburgs to Bushkill. It was a time of heady prospects as the resorts of the Delaware Water Gap pushed north up the valley. Modest farmhouses became vacation boardinghouses, and some then blossomed into grand hotels. The railway brought in vacationers by the carload, but it was not just about tourism. The dinkey hauled in coal for winter heat and hauled out lumber, dairy, and farm produce that kept the farmers in cash. Farm children commuted to town to earn their high school degrees. For more than a generation, the dinkey's whistle blowing over the valley linked its people and places. Delta1

DIESELS TO THE HIGH COUNTRY - NEW YORK CENTRAL'S CATSKILL MOUNTAIN BRANCH John Ham hardcover

The author has always been impressed with the color photgraphy of Eugene C Dauner. It was Gene's suggestion that his extensive slide collection might be the basis for a color book about diesel operation on the Catskill Mountain Branch of the New York Central. After months of picking through more than two thousand color sides, more then two hundred and fifty views were selected of this branch line (formerly the Ulster & Delaware) during the New York Central/Penn Central diesel years. This remembrance is more a photo essay than a word filled volume and allows the story of the last years of the Catskill Mountain Branch to be told with pictures and captions, rather than as an extensive historical narrative.

The line was forced to merge because of competition from more efficient lake vessels on Lake Superior, which could carry goods of lower value at much better rates than the DSS&A. 135 photos, 35 maps.

DURANGO & SILVERTON "Sam Furukawa hardcover

FOR ALMOST 130 YEARS the shrill whistles of steam locomotives have echoed off the steep walls of Southwestern Colorado's beautiful Animas River valley. Railroads first came to this remote region in the decade of the 1880s, in search of gold and silver. Colorado had just achieved statehood, and the rush was on to exploit the new territory to the fullest. Durango became the center of this booming mining district, and after pausing there briefly, the Denver & Rio Grande pushed its rails 45 miles up the Animas valley to Silverton. The line, then called the Silverton Branch, was a marvel of 19th-century civil engineering. Today it operates as the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, and it is no less a marvel. The D&SNG is also a priceless and nearly perfectly preserved example of living history. Every year, hundreds of thousands of visitors come to Durango to ride the trains - still powered by superbly maintained steam engines - and to experience the unblemished wilderness of the Animas River gorge. D&SNG trains and locomotives, the people who run them, and the superb scenery they traverse are the subjects of the photographs in this book. The history of the line has been covered in many other volumes, so the photos here seek to portray this breathtaking railroad as it operates in the 21st Century. Delta1 "
