ON THE RUTLAND
On a map, the Rutland resembled an upside-down "Y" The stem ran north/south from the Canadian border to Rutland, VT. At Alburgh, VT, it pointed west to Ogdensburg, NY, on the mouth of the St. Lawrence River. At the city of Rutland, the route divided into the Bellows Falls branch, which pointed southeast toward Boston, and the Chatham branch, which continued directly south to New York City.
In theory, a railroad is a linear system, and all trains run the same course with the same degree of emphasis. In practice, this is only occasionally true. On the Rutland, the main freight business was east/west, between Bellows Falls and Norwood, NY (near Ogdensburg), for traffic between New England and the West. This is the route of the famous Rutland Whippet. The mainline between Rutland and Chatham was more or less a branch of this bridge line traffic. The main passenger business was north/south, between New York and Montreal, with the Ogdensburg and Bellows Falls subdivisions being the branches. At North Bennington, the passenger trains were diverted over to the Boston & Maine to head to Troy and then down the New York Central's Hudson Division.
