The Lehigh Valley Railroad has reached its hundredth birthday!
Few railroads today can look back one hundred years to their birthday--yet that is what the Lehigh Valley Railroad does on April 21, 1946. Survival of a public service enterprise during one full century can only be the result of its patrons' faith in the competence of management and the individual efforts of its employees, who have devoted themselves to the development of their railroad and the regions which it serves.
One has merely to scan our nation's history to ascertain the importance of railroads in the growth of our American way of life. In observing this centennial, men and women of the Lehigh Valley Railroad can look back to the weathering of wars, depressions, floods and vicissitudes borne so courageously by those hardy pioneers who faced an uncertain future in a wilderness that was an unknown quantity.
With the thought that our patrons, to whom we owe our existence, might like to know more about us, this booklet has been prepared in commemoration of our 100th birthday.
The Lehigh Valley Railroad today extends from New York City to Buffalo and Niagara Falls on the west; has extensive branches in the anthracite fields in Pennsylvania and reaches Rochester and other important cities and towns in western and central New York State. The story of the Lehigh Valley Railroad is the story of the growth of a line originally planned to be 46 miles long but which now extends 458 miles, with 796 miles of branches.
