New York Central Electric Zone
By Walter E. Zullig, Jr.
A 1903 law prohibiting the use of steam locomotives in
Manhattan became the catalyst that started the predecessor companies of
the New York Central and New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroads on
the path to electrification. Starting with that era, the book tells the
story of the massive electrification projects of both railroads with
special emphasis on the new Grand Central Terminal that opened in 1913
and continues to serve the public today. In addition to the NYC's
electrification, the book explains the role of the New Haven RR and its
electrification system. It brings the story up to date including the
present day operation by the Metro-North RR and extension of the Harlem
Line electrification from North White Plains to Southeast, north of
