Railroads of New York's Capital District
By Timothy Starr
This book of 128 pages with over 200 illustrations begins with a look at the pioneer railroads in the area. The New York's Capital District became an important railroad hub very early. There were railroads built headed in every direction and this makes this book very interesting beginning with the first chapter.
The second chapter covers Albany and vicinity with information and photos of the NYC's West Albany shops, the Albany Union Station and the railroads that served Albany's industrial area.
Coverage of Schenectady includes excellent writing and photos of the GE works, ALCo's locomotive facilities where many NYC locomotives were built, Albany Union Station, and Rotterdam Junction where NYC and B&A interchanged with other railroads.
The Troy area is covered with a look at Troy's Union Station and coverage of the railroad traffic through the heart of the city.
The final chapter reviews many of the historic locations and facilities that have long passed into railroad memory. This book preserves many of these and is a very interesting and enjoyable read for NYC fans.
