"Joining New England with the West - A Photographic Trip Through History."
"Down through the years, noted railroad authors and historians have written significant detailed written histories of the different railroads leading to the completion of the great Poughkeepsie Railroad Bridge. In this book the authors have tried to tie all this together into a single, heavily illustrated source that takes you along the way from the great yards at Maybrook, New York, across the Hudson to Connecticut's capitol city of Hartford, and then to the Cedar Hill Yards at New Haven.
"A short narrative of significant historic subject matter precedes sections of the book. More than 100 different station stops along the way are included. The authors have worked diligently to gather more than 600 quality photographs (many in color), maps, passes and timetables with each photograph having a descriptive caption to help tell the story."
