New York, Susquehanna Western Railroad in New Jersey

New York, Susquehanna Western Railroad in New Jersey (Edward S Kaminski) Originally incorporated in 1881, the New York, Susquehanna &Western Railroad has had a long history in New Jersey. The railroad expanded by the early 1890s into the thriving Pennsylvania coalfields and eventually grew to over 200 miles of trackage in the northern portion of New Jersey. Always viewed as an underdog in a marketplace surrounded by much larger railroads, the New York, Susquehanna &Western emerged from 40 years of Erie Railroad control; survived several bankruptcies, reorganizations, abandonments, and retrenchments through innovative passenger and freight service offerings; and transformed into today’s regional rail carrier with a size far greater than ever imagined.
