   New York Central Railroad's Putnam Division Preview Go
The New York & Northern was part of a Bronx to Boston route with the New York & New England Railroad via Danbury and Hartford. Financial failure forced the line to be leased to the New York Central in 1895. It became the Putnam Division. A connection was made at 155th Street with the 9th Ave. EL (which ran to downtown Manhattan). In 1913, it was formally merged into the New York Central. As the Putnam Division, its backwoods nature and the Bronx transfer never allowed it to grow like the Harlem and Hudson Divisions. The Putnam Division (sort of inappropriately named because most of its trackage was in Westchester County) was a rural railroad almost on top of New York City. The Saw Mill River valley is a beautiful rural retreat and also important as a watershed to the city.
   New England's Alphabet Rail Route Preview Go
New England Gateway, The New Alphabet Route. The original Alphabet Route, early in the 20th Century, was a coalition of railroads connecting the Midwest United States with the Northeast, as a freight alternate to the four major systems - the Pennsylvania Railroad, New York Central Railroad, Erie Railroad and Baltimore and Ohio Railroad. Named for the many-lettered initials of the participating railroads. Other variations existed too. In recent years, rail freight into and out of New England has been mostly Conrail (now CSX) or Guilford. Another route now exists that avoids these carriers.
   The Poughkeepsie Railtoad Bridge after the 1974 Fire Preview Go
The Maybrook Line was important to New England before the advent of Penn Central and before the Poughkeepsie Bridge burned. This piece of the railroad carried freight from Maybrook Yard, across the Poughkeepsie Bridge to Hopewell Junction where it joined a line from Beacon. The railroad then went to Brewster, then Danbury, and finally to Cedar Hill Yard in New Haven. See the effects of this fire on Eastern Railroading. Follow progress on the new WalkWay Over the Hudson.
