New York Central Railroad tracks reached into the Adirondack Mountains of upper New York State. One line even went across the Canadian border to Ottawa. Here's a timeline of railroads in the Adirondacks.
EMD Model 40; a rare early diesel locomotive
Electro-Motive Division (EMD) of GM is famous as a major US locomotive builder since the 1940's. Except for 2 demonstrators DH1 & DH2, the only real commercial small locomotive venture was the Model 40, introduced in 1940. Also we cover many other interesting "critters". We have a section on ALCO - The American Locomotive Company.
