MSB6638 Erie Railroad Official Photography Volume 4: by Daniel G. Biernacki | Morning Sun Books

Erie Railroad Official Photography, Vol. 4, is essentially a scrapbook with explanations of the images from the Erie RR Company Magazine files.

This volume covers the surviving files in alphabetical order from Kennedy, NY to New York Harbor facilities and marine operations.

Files such as Kennedy, NY, consist of just one image, while others are more extensive. Meadville covers the freight yard, engine facilities and the various shops. These include the general layout of the facilities and the internal equipment and operation.

The general purpose of these volumes is to show how the railroad looked and how it worked.

MSB1702 New York Central Electric Zone In Color: by Walter E. Zullig, Jr. | Morning Sun Books

A 1903 law prohibiting the use of steam locomotives in Manhattan became the catalyst that started the predecessor companies of the New York Central and New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroads on the path to electrification. Starting with that era, the book tells the story of the massive electrification projects of both railroads with special emphasis on the new Grand Central Terminal that opened in 1913 and continues to serve the public today. In addition to the NYC's electrification, the book explains the role of the New Haven RR and its electrification system. It brings the story up to date including the present day operation by the Metro-North RR and extension of the Harlem Line electrification from North White Plains to Southeast, north of Brewster.
