Proposed Purchase of Segments of the Lehigh & New England
Ever wonder about how the Jersey’s Central’s purchase of portions of the Lehigh & New England came about? We found a copy of a book published in April of 1960 that was originally released as a report to the Central Railroad of New Jersey by the consulting engineering firm of Coverdale & Colpitts to analyze the purchase of the portions of the Lehigh & New England Railroad in the cement and the anthracite coal region while abandoning the rest of the line. In this report you will find a detailed look at the current traffic on the L&NE as well as the financial justification for the CNJ to purchase these portions of the L&NE. The book is 42 pages long plus an 11″ X 17″ fold out color map.
It is a great reference tool, not to mention lots of interesting reading!
