The railroad expanded by the early 1890s into the thriving Pennsylvania coalfields and eventually grew to over 200 miles of trackage in the northern portion of New Jersey. Always viewed as an underdog in a marketplace surrounded by much larger railroads, the New York, Susquehanna & Western emerged from 40 years of Erie Railroad control- survived several bankruptcies, reorganizations, abandonments, and retrenchments through innovative passenger and freight service offerings- and transformed into todays regional rail carrier with a size far greater than ever imagined.
