Description
The New York Central System by Michael Leavy

Return to the fondly remembered glory days of an upstate New York railroad in The Fonda, Johnstown, & Gloversville Railroad: Sacandaga Route to the Adirondacks.  This innovative line, a source of great interest for railroad enthusiasts, was a long direct connection to the New York Central.  The FJ&G served its communities for over 100 years, using the finest and newest equipment available.  Here is the chance to view it like never before, through the eyes of early photographers in many previously unpublished images.  Included are the communities through which the railroad traveled along its 130 miles, captured from the 1870s to the 1980s. Thanks to early historians with the foresight to preserve such records, we are able to return to the heyday when the FJ&G stopped at splendid Victorian stations and boasted some of the most advanced equipment in the country. The railroad was split between extensive steam and electric divisions.  Sacandaga Part was a popular destination for tourists to the southern Adirondacks in the late 1800s; the park is one of the many FJ&G stops included in this impressive collection of images.

Author Bio:  Author Randy L. Decker brings his lifelong love of railroads to this unique historical work, as well as his memories of growing up in Gloversville during the 1960s.  He spent many years traveling throughout the communities along the route, collecting photos and countless stories from the people who worked on the railroad.

Be aware that the accuracy of some of Arcadia’s home-spun histories is sometimes questionable. Hence, your NYCSHS directors would be interested in reviews by knowledgeable members. Published by Arcadia Publishing, this softcover retails for $22, with NYCSHS members paying only $17.60. Shipping is extra and Ohio residents must add 8% Ohio sales tax.
