- The Harlem Line
The Harlem Line, formerly part of the New York Central System, began in 1831 with a charter to run from 23rd Street to the northern tip of Manhattan. At that time, 23rd Street was too far north for most people, so the charter was changed to start the line at Prince Street. Two decades later, the line reached 131 miles north to Chatham where it connected with the Boston and Albany line.
- The Hudson and Manhattan Railroad
A brief history of the Hudson and Manhattan Railroad (now PATH) joint service to Newark.
- The Hudson Line
The Hudson Line, formerly part of the New York Central System, begins in Grand Central Terminal and starts a steep climb in the Park Avenue Tunnel. This part of the line was originally the New York and Harlem R.R. that was built in the 1830s.
- The New Haven Line
The New Haven Line began as the New York and New Haven Railroad in the early 1800s. In 1872, the NY&NH was merged with the Harford and New Haven RR to form the New York, New Haven and Hartford RR.
- The Shore Line Trolley Museum Information Page
The museum, located in New Haven, CT, operates on the original Connecticut Company route to Branford, abandonned in 1945. The museum has operated the line since then, making it the oldest continually run suburban transit line in the country. The mile and a half line traverses a variety of terrain, including woods, meadow, and waterfowl bedecked salt marshes. From some vantage points, Shore Line's route appears as if it were still operating in the 1930's.
