The Delaware and Hudson Railway, was our country’s oldest surviving transportation company, with a corporate existence that spanned 168 years.

What's left of the railroad is now split between Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern.  The D&H began as a canal operation, the vision of early entrepreneurs to transport anthracite coal from northeastern Pennsylvania to the metropolis of New York City. 

The Adirondack Mountains form a massif in northeastern New York with boundaries that correspond roughly to those of Adirondack Park. They cover about 5,000 square miles. The mountains form a roughly circular dome, about 160 miles in diameter and about 1 mile high. The current relief owes much to glaciation.
