History of the Delaware & Northern Railroad

The Delaware & Northern Railroad, and its predecessor the Delaware & Eastern Railroad, existed for just shy of forty years. Starting with big aspirations of being an interstate freight hauler, the D&N became a quiet country railroad. Tales are still told of this colorful railroad. The D&N was depended upon by the people of the East Branch Valley. The railroad, despite being nicknamed the "Damn Nuisance," was a beloved part of the valley. Presented here are the two most well known written histories of this railroad - long out of print.
