New York Central Electric Zone in Color from Morning Sun Books gives us a colorful account of railroading where steam and diesels are banned. 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, author Walter E. Zullig Jr. 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 Metro-North Commuter Railroad and extension of the Harlem Line electrification from North White Plains to Southeast, north of Brewster. New York Central Electric Zone in Color is loaded with reference photos for modelers and informative captions provide great information for railfans and historians. New York Central Electric Zone in Color is one of many all-color books from Morning Sun featuring NYC. Hardcover, 128 pages.
