The third in a series of titles chronicling the little Rahway Valley Railroad in northern New Jersey, this book covers the railroad’s facilities, the industries it served, and how it operated its trains over the course of its ninety-five years. With only 11.8 miles of track, the RV’s facilities - bridges, stations, grade crossings, and more - were archaic and home-spun. The railroad served a wide variety of small- to medium-sized industries which shipped a vast array of commodities to and from all over the country. Train crews employed unique methods to operate freight, passenger, and excursion trains over this single-track streak of rust. This is all covered and thoroughly illustrated with photographs, scale drawings, and track maps. With 400 pages, this extensive spiral-bound volume is an incredibly detailed guide to this little railroad.
