It all began in 1825 when George Featherstonhaugh announced the formation of the Mohawk & Hudson Rail Road Company. In 1831 the "DeWitt Clinton" make its first run on the Mohawk & Hudson between Albany and Schenectady. The New York Central Railroad was created in 1853 by the merger of ten railroads between Albany and Buffalo. It was spearheaded by Albany industrialist Erastus Corning. Commodore Vanderbilt brought it together with the Hudson River and Harlem Railroads to form the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad. In 1914, it merged again with several railroads between Buffalo and Chicago to form the New York Central Railroad Company.
