Description:

This is the online edition of The Third Rail, a magazine devoted to the history, technology and politics of rail and rapid transit transportation. The majority of the content focuses on the New York metropolitan area. For example, the May 2003 issue features Brooklyn's new Coney Island terminal. Archived issues cover topics such as the inter-borough strike of 1919, the Long Island Railroad, and the 1954 World's Fair which provided the impetus for starting the New York City transit museum. The articles are very well researched and enjoyable to read. This is an excellent site for railroad and transportation buffs, historians, or anyone who has an interest in the history of New York City and the boroughs.
