New York and Northern Railway

4 products

    New York & Northern Railway was incorporated in New York on October 11, 1887 as a reorganization of the New York City & Northern Railroad. A month later, the Yonkers Rapid Transit Railway was merged into the company.

    By 1894, it was reorganized as the New York & Putnam Railroad by J. P. Morgan who in turned leased the railroad to the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad. The line eventually became the Putnam Division of the New York Central Railroad by 1913.

    The line lacked a direct connection to the NYC's flagship station, Grand Central Terminal, which hurt ridership throughout its existence. Passengers were forced to transfer at Highbridge to reach GCT. The Sedgwick Avenue-Van Cortlandt section and the Yonkers Branch were electrified in 1926.
