History of the Danbury & Norwalk Railroad which utilized its location to become a key route for freight and passenger service to the Long Island steamships and Shore Line passenger trains for New York and points beyond. Leased to the Housatonic Railroad, it briefly enjoyed fame as a link in a Boston-New York passenger route when Norwalk's Wilson's Point steamer line turned into a major cargo transshipment facility. Ultimately, however, the New York, New Haven & Hartford's acquisition of the Housatonic returned the D&L to its commuter roots supplemented by service to resorts in the Berkshire Hills. The author traces the railroad's origins, 19th century expansion and operations, merger into the NYNH&H, and its continued existence as part of Metro-North. Illustrated throughout with photos, 30 of which are in full colour. Includes locomotive roster, chronology, and timetables. 1987 Flying Yankee Enterprises. Hardcover with dw. VG. 132pp. THV-LQB-EFX
