In word and picture this book tells about that railroads' construction, early operations, the famous passenger trains and the magnificent hotels. Presented are the Catskill Mountain Railroad, the Otis Elevating Railway, the Catskill & Tannersville Railroad, and the Delaware & Northern Railway. This is an intensely human story of struggle and triumph in the New York tradition."
