Description - New Haven Passenger Trains by Peter E. Lynch
Day and night for well over 100 years, the New Haven Railroad plied the rails between New York City and Boston, its mere 1,800 miles of track carrying more passengers than any other railroad in the history of the U.S. rail industry. This illustrated history revisits the days when New England's fortunes were inseparable from the New Haven's-when trains like the Merchants Limited, Yankee Clipper, Cranberry, and Quaker carried tourists and commuters to the great cities of the East Coast, and to destinations like Cape Cod, Hyannis, and Woods Hole, boat connections to Martha's Vineyard, and ski slopes in the Berkshires.
