L&N RAILROAD IN THE CIVIL WAR Dan Lee Softcover

The Louisville & Nashville Railroad was completed just as the first salvos of the Civil War erupted. As one of the few U.S. railroads linking the North and South, the L&N was valuable to both the Union and the Confederacy. Consequently, its route became a fiercely contested corridor of fire and blood. This history recounts the numerous military events along the L&N in the years 1861 through 1865, and also examines the still-resonant theme of the relationship between a major corporation and the government during a time of national crisis.

LAKE TAHOE'S RAILROADS Stephen Drew 128 pages softcover

Lake Tahoe is the majestic mountain lake that spans the boundary line of California and Nevada. The lake's clarity and scenic beauty are legendary. In the 1870s, the Nevada Comstock Lode created an insatiable appetite for Lake Tahoe's virgin pine forests. The timbers would shore up underground mining and build communities approaching 40,000 inhabitants. Railroads on three shores delivered the logs lakeside, where they were towed by steam-powered tugs to sawmills, to lumber flumes, and again by rail to their final destinations. As the mines and giant lake pines subsided, railroads pushed farther north after 1898 into new timber stands in the Lake Tahoe and Truckee River basins. Other rail lines were sold, barged across the lake, and repurposed for the burgeoning new industry of tourism. For the next 40 years, railroads marketed Lake Tahoe as their unique scenic destination.

LEHIGH & NEW ENGLAND RAILROAD COMPANY OPERATIONS ON THE EAST END Peter Brill 308 pages softcover

For approximately the last four decades of its existence, the Lehigh & New England Railroadミs operations through New Jersey and New York were typlified by the image of either a massive E-14 class 2-8-0 or a three or four unit set of Alco FAミs/FBミs hauling a long freight consisting primarily of two-bay coal hoppers, covered cement hoppers and box cars carrying bagged cement. The anthracite coal and Portland cement primarily originated on the L&NE in Pennsylvania while the bituminous coal was received from CNJ at Bethlehem Jct. via the RDG at Allentown. On the way to the New Havenミs Maybrook Yard, the gateway to southern New England, traffic was interchanged with the NYS&W, DL&W, Erie, O&W and NYC. There were few online customers and they were switched by the road freights.There had been an earlier era, dating back to the days of the Pennsylvania, Poughkeepsie & Boston, when the east end originated loads of granite, limestone and milk. A modest steam-powered passenger service was converted to motor car service. A variety of locomotives dominated by various classes of 2-8- 0ミs but also including 4-4-0ミs and 4-6-0ミs handled assignments. While this book concentrates on L&NEミs operations in New Jersey and New York, it also presents significant information on Pen Argyl and the main line eastward to the Delaware River as this was the route of the freights to Maybrook. Much of this information is contained in the presentation of 28 conductorミs train reports in 1945 and 1947 showing delays at stations including the number of cars set off or taken on and the assistance of pushers both east and westbound over sections of the route..In contrast to many of the anthracite roads which controlled their own coal companies until forced by the federal government to divest themselves of these operations, the L&NE was owned by an anthracite mining company, the Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company, for the last fifty-seven years of its existence.The L&NE was also unique among the western carriers entering Maybrook Yard as its operations in New Jersey and New York primarily utilized the trackage of other carriers, particularly the NYS&W and the Erie/EL. After the L&NE ended operations on October 31, 1961, the NYS&W and EL soon responded by abandoning this trackage. This book features extensive coverage of the NYS&W main between Hainesburg Jct. and Swartswood Jct. and the Erie/ELミs Pine Island and Montgomery branches.The L&NE was the modest culmination of a grand scheme envisioning a trunk line extending from north of Harrisburg, PA to Boston, the South Mountain & Boston Railroad Company. Construction of a much smaller railroad was still beset by years of financial difficulties and corporate reorganizations but the railroad that was ultimately built enjoyed about forty years of success as a heavy hauler of coal and cement to the New York and New England markets. SM&B, PP&B and L&NE along with a number of other short-lived corporate entities are all covered in this book. Lima1

LEHIGH & SUSQUEHANNA JERSEY CENTRAL'S PENNSYLVANIA OPERATIONS VOL 1 BUILDING A RAILROAD WORTH LEASING Peter Brill 148 pages softcover

The "Lehigh & Susquehanna Railroad" was Lehigh Coal & Navigationミs unincorporated railroad that commenced operations in 1837 southward from Wilkes-Barre to White Haven where it connected with LC&Nミs Lehigh Canal. By 1868, the L&S had been extended to Easton with a bridge over the Delaware River to Phillipsburg for connections to the Jersey Central, Morris & Essex and Belvidere Delaware railroads which relayed LC&Nミs anthracite to tidewater in New York Harbor. In 1871, LC&N leased the L&S for 999 years to Jersey Central. It was CNJミs "Lehigh & Susquehanna Division" between 1871 and 1946 when it became, for tax purposes, the "Central Railroad of Pennsylvania" for a short period before becoming CNJミs "Pennsylvania Division" from 1953 to 1972. However, the development of the L&S into a sizeable main line railroad with a number of coal-originating branches was the culmination of approximately eight decades dating back to the initial discoveries of anthracite deposits in northeast Pennsylvania. In this period, a major mining industry developed in the anthracite fields and it spawned a system of canals which was soon superseded by a dense network of railroads that coalesced into the Lehigh Valley, Reading and L&S railroads. The ready availability of anthracite for fuel and coking purposes as well as nearby deposits of iron ore and limestone combined with the voracious needs of the expanding mining companies and railroads fostered the growth of the anthracite iron industry in the Lehigh River Valley as well as numerous foundries, several railcar manufacturers and other factories. These eight decades are explored in this book which is intended as the first in a series of five volumes which will examine the entire history of the L&S, its importance to CNJ, competitors, industries it served and the evolving relationship between CNJ and LC&N.

LEHIGH & SUSQUEHANNA JERSEY CENTRAL'S PENNSYLVANIA OPERATIONS VOL 2 A DIVISION MATURES Peter Brill 268 pages softcover

The era covered by the first volume, 1791-1871, focused on anthracite in northeast Pennsylvania; the early efforts to mine it; transport it and develop markets for its consumption. By the end of the volume, the Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company had built a railroad, the Lehigh & Susquehanna between Easton and Union Jct., to supplement its canal in moving anthracite to tidewater. Jersey Central, connecting with railroads from the anthracite fields at Phillipsburg, NJ, leased the L&S from LC&N on March 31, 1871 for 999 years. The L&S became CNJメs L&S Division. Industry was booming throughout the territory bordering the L&S. Hundreds of anthracite breakers would soon dot the Lehigh and Wyoming coal regions. A robust anthracite iron industry was developing in the Lehigh Valley and a cement industry was arising as well. Heavy manufacturing plants were erected to support the mining and railroad industries and build products from the pig iron output of the local blast furnaces. But, the booming freight traffic had to be shared with aggressive competitors such as the parallel Lehigh Valley Railroad which had the advantage of a sizeable head start. A host of competitors vied for anthracite tonnage in the Wyoming Region. Thus, CNJ did not enjoy unbridled success in the anthracite fields and several branches ultimately failed. Freight routings were streamlined. CNJ and LC&N cooperated to develop the Lehigh & Hudson River as a conduit for New England traffic via the Poughkeepsie Bridge. Construction of the Allentown Terminal Railroad provided a direct CNJ/P&R connection as well as access to industry in Allentown. Arrival of the NYO&W in Scranton gave CNJ an end to end connection with a friendly carrier in a city dominated by the DL&W. In the two decades covered by this volume, 1872-1891, CNJ upgraded the L&S with double track and heavier steel rail; constructed branches to serve new customers; built up a fleet of almost 20,000 6-ton coal jimmies and started the conversion to 25 and 30-ton coal gondolas. Employment rolls swelled as thousands of employees were needed to crew the trains; maintain the engines and rolling stock; maintain, upgrade and patrol the track; staff the stations and crossing shanties in every city, town and hamlet along the railroad; maintain records to track every car movement and expenditure; bill and collect freight charges and perform countless other tasks. So, this is a volume about growth, competition and a generally bright future as the anthracite railroads, buoyed by the ever-increasing industrialization and population of northeast Pennsylvania, burrowed deeply into the everyday lives of the public which depended on them for mobility and the delivery of many daily necessities.

LEHIGH & SUSQUEHANNA JERSEY CENTRAL'S PENNSYLVANIA OPERATIONS VOL 3 ALL HAIL KING COAL Peter Brill 314 pages softcover

Volume III, covering 1892 - 1917, will take us into the peak years of the anthracite mining industry and of the Jersey Central in Pennsylvania as well. This will be generally a narrative of growth and prosperity, mirroring the continued growth of the anthracite mining industry which achieved its all-time peak production in 1917. However, there were periods of recession and some industries, such as lumber and anthracite iron, with the notable exception of Bethlehem Steel, were in severe decline. The local rail car building industry peaked and then disappeared as several companies went out of business while one successfully transformed itself into a supplier of machinery to the booming Lehigh Cement District. Although directly serving only one cement mill, CNJ shared in the traffic flow to and from numerous mills through its connections with the Ironton and Northampton & Bath railroads. This was an era of continued capital improvements along a mature route structure. Larger sizes of steel rail were laid and bridges were replaced to accommodate ever heavier locomotives and rolling stock. Allentown Yard was constructed and gradually enlarged over a period of approximately thirteen years. The Central States Dispatch freight routing of B&O-WM-RDG-CNJ-L&HR via Allentown Yard started up. Merchandise freight became an increasingly important component of CNJ's freight revenue mix in comparison to anthracite and bituminous coal. CNJ took delivery of its finest drag era road power, large 4-8-0's and 2-8-0's, while coal cars grew in size to 50/55-ton capacity and wooden cars were replaced by steel cars. More capable power and larger cars enabled CNJ crews to move coal trains aggregating as much as 4,000 tons. Unlike some of its competitors in the anthracite regions, who eschewed planes and moved faster to embrace more capable models of steam locomotives, CNJ modernized and greatly extended the life of the Ashley Planes and its large fleet of plodding 4-8-0's and 2-8-0's through rebuilding programs. This book ends just short of the modern steam era on the CNJ, symbolized by 2-8-2's and heavy 4-6-2's. Relations with landlord LC&N became complex as the profitability of the Lehigh & Susquehanna far exceeded LC&N's historical projections. CNJ's annual rental payments reached the contract maximum while its profits from LC&N's railroad continued to grow. LC&N's new subsidiary, the Lehigh & New England Railroad, developed into a significant competitor as LC&N used the L&NE to siphon off traffic from CNJ. This book may be of interest to period modelers of the CNJ and the anthracite railroads in general. There is an 18-page section on CNJ freight cars including a 30-ton hopper-bottom gondola, 40-ton steel hopper, 50-ton steel hopper, 30-ton box car, 40-ton hopper-bottom gondola, 55-ton fishbelly gondola, 40-ton ice car and a 30-ton stock car. Builders include Standard Steel, ACF, Cambria Steel and Middletown Car Works. In some cases, plans are presented or the reader can Google Book Search the referenced magazine for plans. In addition plans are presented for a Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Company mine car and there is a 3-page section on the Sterlingworth Railway Supply Company's hopper-gondola. There is also a 12-page section on CNJ motive power including wheel types 0-6-0, 0-8-0, 4-4-0, 4-6-0 and 4-8-0. Lima1

LEHIGH & SUSQUEHANNA JERSEY CENTRAL'S PENNSYLVANIA OPERATIONS VOL 4 ALL THE KING'S HORSES Peter Brill 396 pages softcover

Volume IV covers 1918 through 1946. It begins with the arrival of the Mikados and Pacifics which, along with the Ashley Planes, handled most of the main line operations throughout this era. It ends with steam and the Planes still dominant but Baldwin double-ender diesels in passenger service and orders for road freight diesels on the books.

The first examples of CNJs finest steam freight power, the Mikados, arrived in 1918. Arrival of the final order in 1925, created a fleet of eighty-six engines which dominated road freights through the balance of this volumes era while bumping camelback 4-8-0s, 2-8-0s and 4-6-0s into lesser assignments. The Ashley Planes continued to hoist most of the freight tonnage out of the Wyoming Valley. Concurrently, large, modern Pacifics took over the main line passenger duties from camelback 4-4-0s and 4-6-0s. Bridges had to be replaced and facilities upgraded to handle the new power. In 1946, CNJ placed its first orders for diesel road power, EMD F-3s and Baldwin DR 4-4-1500s and took delivery of its first road diesel passenger power in the form of Baldwin DRX 6-4-2000s, units unique in the American railroad industry for their double-cab configuration.

In late 1929, CNJ introduced The Bullet, the L&S Divisions equivalent to the Southern Divisions Atlantic City flyer, The Blue Comet, and followed up with The Williamsporter in early 1930. But passenger traffic was in a long term decline and The Bullet was withdrawn from service within two years while The Williamsporter survived until 1945.

CNJs facilities in Mauch Chunk and Ashley declined in importance relative to Allentown and Bethlehem. The anthracite coal and anthracite iron industries faded but the Lehigh District Portland cement industry grew until midway in the era. The Alphabet Route joined the Central States Dispatch as another important freight routing via Allentown. Major capital investments included expansion and continued modernization of Allentown Yard; construction of a new engine terminal in Bethlehem and installation of a new coal dumping pier in Jersey City.

Under a federal order, CNJ sold the Lehigh & Wilkes-Barre Coal Company in 1923. The buyers sold the business in 1930 to the Glen Alden Coal Company, owner of the DL&Ws former coal operations. This created the industrys largest operator. In 1939 Glen Alden closed most former L&W-BC breakers and centralized their coal preparation, except for Wanamie and South Wilkes-Barre, at the new Huber Breaker in Ashley.

On August 5, 1946, the Central Railroad of Pennsylvania, formerly CNJs subsidiary, the Easton & Western Railroad, took over operations in Pennsylvania in an attempt to shield Pennsylvania income from excessive New Jersey taxes.

Eyewitness accounts from nearly 150 years ago and historic images present this remarkable journey of President Abraham Lincoln's remains, from the nation's Capitol to his final resting place in Springfield, Illinois. More than 440 cities, towns, villages and byways were on the route in 1865, and each is included in this fascinating volume. The veteran author draws from reports, documents, and contemporary narratives to finally fully present the event. Long-forgotten photographs and dozens of Lincoln-handled documents are included, adding further authentic flavor to this enthrallingly detailed, true-story of the historic Lincoln Funeral Train.
