D&H Railroad Workers

This photo captures three D&H Railroad employees repairing some tracks.

Railroad workers are essential for transporting people and goods throughout New York State and beyond.

Cut in 1913 by the Delaware and Hudson Company, the D&H Railroad’s mainline linked the coal regions of Pennsylvania to tidewater at Portland, Maine.

At the height of its influence in the 1940s, it extended through the Southern Tier of New York State along a route paralleling that of the Delaware River.
