Southeast Museum OnLine Exhibition:

In 1860 there was 2,682 miles of railroad track in New York State. By 1900 there were over 8,000 miles of track in New York State and 190,00 miles of track across the United States. The advent of the steam train in the mid-19th century had changed the physical and economic landscape of the region as well as the country.

Join us for a look at some of that history...
