RE: [FJGRailroad] Books on the FJG
- Steam and Trolley Days is often offered on eBay, in fact there's one there
tonight. It's the bible right now. Takes you up to the late fifties. If
that one isn't good enough there'll be another soon. They are offered
regularly and go reasonable. The Bill Gordon book Trolleys down the Mohawk
is a reprint of this first book with a few more pictures and a history of
the Schenectady Railway as well. The last time that one was offered it
didn't get a bid. Those TDTM books tend to fall apart because of the way
they were bound.
I do a search of "Transportation - Railroadiana" using search word "Fonda"
to find things related to the FJ&G on eBay.
Someone here can fill you in on the history after the fifties. A couple of
us worked for the road in different eras; the archives of this group have
much discussion of various facets of the history.
