The Morristown & Erie Railroad - Past & Present

  • Morristown & Morris Township Library (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

As part of the North Jersey History & Genealogy Center's presentation series, GPCo author Rudy Garbely will be giving a slideshow presentation on the Morristown & Erie Railroad, a local 120‐year‐old New Jersey short line railroad with a long history and a unique charm. Garbely’s presentation explores the railroad's beginnings in the 1890s, its successes throughout the 20th century, and its continued operations today. From its humble beginnings shuttling goods between Whippany's mills and Morristown's markets through its bustling World War II activities and its major 1980s expansion projects, the Morristown & Erie still remains Morristown's friendly local railroad.

Garbely's three GPCo books on the M&E will be available for sale at the event.

Morristown, NJ - GPCo Author Presentation - Richard J. King

At the Tri-State Railway Historical Society's monthly meeting, GPCo author and editor Richard J. King will be giving a presentation on his current book project, The Railroads of Aldene. The presentation focuses on the various railroads of the one-square-mile Aldene, NJ area (including parts of Cranford, Roselle, and Roselle Park), which at one time contained the Central Railroad of New Jersey, Lehigh Valley, Baltimore & Ohio, Staten Island Rapid Transit, Rahway Valley, and Reading. From the first laying of rails in the 1870s through modern-day operations (Conrail, NJ Transit, Susquehanna, and Morristown & Erie), King will talk about the multiple interchanges and flow of traffic through one of New Jersey’s busiest railroad intersections. King’s book, The Railroads of Aldene, will be available from The Garbely Publishing Company near the end of 2016.
