Description
The New York Central System by Michael Leavy

The advent of the railroad—an important link to industry—forged the interworkings of the nation, and especially the port city of City of Toledo.  Railroads began reaching the area in 1850, and Toledo soon became a focal point in the region’s rail network.  Toledo bridged the gap between cities like Chicago and Cleveland and Detroit and Cincinnati, making coal available to cities everywhere.  Just after the turn of the 20th century, there were 20 railroads servicing Toledo with four different stations.  New York central was a BIG player in Toledo.  Today, many “fallen flags” are lost to mergers.  This book preserves their history through vintage images of trains, rail yards, stations, roundhouses, towers, bridges, and special trains.

Author Bio:  Kirk F. Hise has had a lifelong interest in railroads and electric railways of the Toledo area.  He began employment with the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway in 1955 as a brakeman and retired in 1988 as a yard conductor. Hise now lives in Genoa, Ohio. Edward J. Pulhuj’s passion for railroading began with childhood trips to visit his grandfather, who worked for the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway.  Pulhuj is an avid collector of Toledo Railroad information and is planning to organize a historical society to preserve Toledo’s rail history.

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.
