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 the railroad away from Frederic C. Dumaine, Jr., through 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 colourful 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 in the McGinnis era.
