The New York Central System was a huge, 10,000-mile railroad in the
Northeast, stretching from New York City to Chicago and Boston to St.
Louis. This book focuses on the St. Lawrence Division as it was during
the 1940s-1960s; this was the glory period of its greatest modern-day
years. This non-main line division, located in Upstate New York,
contained more than 600 miles of track, including branches and running
rights. The mid-20th century was a time of enormous change in the
railroad industry. New technology affording economy, competition in
transportation, reduced labor, and politics would be some of the factors
leading to the change. Neighboring division crews had great respect for
their "Hojack" colleagues, as was the division's nickname. 128 pages.
