Description:

The New Haven Railroad in The McGinnis Era by Marc J. Frattasio In Cooperation with the NHRH&TA. The New Haven Railroad, though relatively small in size, in its day served the most densely populated and industrialized area of the United States. To satisfy the broad service requirements of its territory, the New Haven maintained a diversity of Passenger Service,2364 completely out of proportion to its size. Although always an interesting railroad, the New Haven took on a larger than life character after Patrick B. McGinnis became its president on April 14, 1954. Unquestionably the most outspoken and controversial railroad executive of his time, McGinnis believed that the railroad industry's greatest handicap was its lack of modern thinking and that his ideas-if universally adopted-could lead the railroads into the future. McGinnis used the New Haven as a laboratory to test his many bold ideas for revitalizing the railroad industry. As a result of his experiments and flair for publicity, the New Haven remained fixed in the public spotlight throughout the 22 months of his administration as no other railroad has ever been, before or since. With the help of over 500 illustrations, author Marc Frattasio tells the full story of the New Haven under Patrick McGinnis, from the bitter battle to wrest control of the line, to the financial chicanery and turmoil that ultimately forced McGinnis to step down. In between are the details of experiments with high-speed passenger trains, the colorful corporate image and architectural design programs, new locomotives and equipment, the commuter insurrection, efforts to merge the New Haven with the Boston & Maine, the hurricanes and floods of 1954 and 1955, the General Motors plan, and many other interesting aspects of the New Haven Railroad in the McGinnis era. Contents: Introduction, pp. 4-7; A History of the New Haven Railroad, pp. 8-33; Patrick B. McGinnis, pp. 34-39; The New Haven Under McGinnis, pp. 40-187; Finis McGinnis, pp. 188-191; McGinnis Goes to the Boston & Maine, pp. 192-211; The New Haven After McGinnis, pp. 212-233; The End of the New Haven Railroad, pp. 234-252; References, Index, pp. 253-256.
