Iron Rails in the Garden State is a sampler of unique and fascinating stories about railroading in New Jersey, culled from archives and independent research. It is a collection of historical vignettes, and because it is not tied to a particular time or railroad line, Anthony J. Bianculli is free to move from one story to another, entertaining the reader with anecdotes of New Jersey railroad pioneers, sacred sites, and expensive mistakes. Included in this book are tales from railroad literature that have not been told at length until now.
