Follow a new railroad into the Adirondack Mountains of New York State. They run tourist trains, dinner trains, and even a ski train from Saratoga to North Creek. They want to reactivate the railroad to a mine that was closed over 20 years ago. New technology and a new attitude maybe just the right combination.

RPO's on the New Haven Railroad

In the New Haven ETT's there was a symbol that looked like an exclamation mark; i.e. "!". This symbol goes back to the days of RPO's (Railway Post Offices) on passenger trains and indicated where mail would either be thrown from the train (in pouches, of course) to an awaiting local mail carrier and at the same time picked up from a wooden stand along side the track in which the mail pouch would be suspended to enable the hook (which would be pushed out in place near the door of the mail car by one of the attendants) to snag the pouch and be brought inside the car for sorting of the contents. This symbol could be found next to stations such as Lime Rock, Cornwall Bridge, Redding, Georgetown and Cannondale on the Berkshire. Unfortunately, it all came to a screeching halt in early 1960 when the U.S. Post Office yanked the service and turned most of the mail handling over to trucks.

The Berkshire Line's RPO was the first one on the New Haven to be discontinued --- other than those routes on which RPO service had ceased because passenger service ceased, including routes such as Waterbury-Winsted (1958), Hartford-Boston (1955), Boston-Cape Cod, and the other old Colony routes (1959).

The final postmark was January 8, 1960; and this was the event that led the NH to downgrade all but the weekend trains to RDC's, since passenger counts on all the other runs no longer justified more than this single coach.

The Pittsfield-Stamford RPO route was discontinued so early because the scheduling of trains was totally "out of sync" with the needs of mail service. For RPO service to be viable there would have to have been a 6:00 PM or later departure from Pittsfield daily; and a 7:00 AM or earlier arrival at Pittsfield!!! No schedule even close to that existed or was worth considering.

Railroad Station at Collinsville, Connecticut

Railroad Station at Collinsville, Connecticut


The Central New England Railway (formerly Connecticut and Western) came from Hartford Ct. via Tariffville and Simsbury to the Farmington River in Canton, where it's only branch backed down to the station in Collinsville. It then proceeded west through Winsted, Norfolk and Canaan, Ct. to New York State.
The Collinsville branch of the Canal Line of the New Haven Railroad went on to New Hartford, where there was a turntable so they could reverse direction.

ec-bp.com The Forum for Supply Chain Integration

ec-bp was established in 2005 as the advocate for lowering the barriers to the adoption of EDI, and our email newsletter has been published every month since that time. Our focus has expanded beyond EDI to encompas the full gamut of supply chain practices and technologies. In addition, our readership has grown to become the largest of any similarly focused publication, and has expanded to include more than 90,000 professionals involved in nearly every aspect of the supply chain.
Today’s supply chain is more than simple transport of EDI documents. The complexity of maintaining compliance with trading partners, managing the ever increasing amount of data, and analyzing that data to drive constant improvement in processes and service take supply chain professionals far beyond the basics of mapping EDI documents.

Railroad Station at Troy, New York

Railroad Station at Troy, New York


The station in Troy was owned by the Troy Union Rail Road. The TURR lasted from the mid 19th Century till the mid 20th Century. It was owned by the New York Central, Delaware & Hudson and Boston & Maine. Access from the South was from Rensselaer; from the West, via the Green Island Bridge; from the North was street running almost the entire length of Troy. See Penney's blog for more information (and a great movie from the 1950's).

The station consisted of 6 thru tracks and towers at each end.

Both became part of the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad.

Sandy Hook, Connecticut


Sandy Hook Connecticut Station
Located on the old New York & New England Railroad Company of the former New Haven Railroad. It is no longer served..

In 1839 Charles Goodyear discovered the process for vulcanizing rubber at a shop in the glen in Sandy Hook, which gave rise to the American rubber industry and lead to the establishment of a rubber factory in Rocky Glen. In 1836 the State chartered the Housatonic Railroad. Depots were established at Cold Spring (Botsford), Newtown (Borough), North Newtown, Hanover Springs and Hawleyville. The Derby and New Haven Railroad completed a link through Stevenson and the Halfway River Valley to the Housatonic line. The New York and New England Railroad pushed a line eastward from Danbury to Hawleyville, paralleling the Housatonic line for several miles and thence running eastward to a depot at Sandy Hook and a high truss and pier bridge over the Housatonic, on its way to Waterbury. At the turn of the 20th Century, there were four rail passenger stations at Botsford, Newtown, Hawleyville and Sandy Hook.

The New York & New England once stretched from Boston and Providence through Hartford to the Hudson River. Begun in 1833 when the Manchester RR was chartered to build east from Hartford to Manchester (a mill town near Hartford), and on to Bolton. It didn't get built until some Rhode Island people put in money. It was eventually built to Fishkill Landing (Beacon) and opened in 1855 as far as Waterbury as the Hartford, Providence & Fishkill. It became part of the Boston, Hartford & Erie, which emerged from 1870 bankruptcy as the NY&NE. Then it stretched from Boston to the Hudson River. The New Haven viewed it as a threat and acquired its friendly connections such as the Housatonic. The NH even convinced the New York Central to take over the New York & Northern (basis for Putnam Division). In 1893, the NY&NE entered bankruptcy and was acquired by the New Haven in 1898.
