Doughty examines the origins of the great stations and terminals which ultimately became a part of the New York Central, including those from Chicago to New York, Cleveland to Cincinnati and St. Louis, from Boston to Albany, and scheduled intermediate stops. Also examined are events at the railroad in the summer of 1956, when the company stunned the industry with the announcement that it would sell 406 stations across its vast 10,000 mile system."
