RAILROAD Books

One of Tri-State's main missions is the education of the public about railroad history. To that end, Tri-State has worked with several local authors over the past half-century to publish meaningful research on railroad topics in New Jersey. Several full-length books have been produced, and purchase information for those that are still available may be found below.

We are always looking for new publication opportunities - if you are interested in working with Tri-State to publish a book, please contact our Publications Committee at Publications@TriStateRail.org.

Larry Lowenthal's classic 1981 book has been republished! This is the authoritative work on the mining region of northern New Jersey and the railroads that served them. Railroads in this region, like the Lackawanna and Central Railroad of New Jersey and their predecessors, greatly influenced the communities they served. Towns like Chester and Rockaway grew up around the railroads and mines that sustained them, and this book is a record of their combined history and eventual decline.
