This book is a compilation of NYO&W articles that have appeared over the course of two decades in The Unionville Flyer, official publication of the Middletown & New Jersey Railway Historical Society. The NYO&W operated between Weehawken, NJ and Maybrook Yard on the east end and Oswego, NY, LV's Coxton Yard and the Cayuga Jct. interchange with the DL&W on its western extremities. Many articles focus on the NYO&W in Orange County, NY and its interactions with the Middletown & Unionville but there is significant coverage of NYO&W operations over the entire railroad including a detailed recounting of every train run on March 29, 1956, the Freight Service Schedule effective May 1, 1956, consideration of allowable speeds for 2-8-0's and a listing of all creameries circa 1935 and their use of rail transport. The titles of the various articles are:
