Excerpt from Guide-Book of the Central Railroad of New Jersey, and Its Connections Through the Coal-Fields of Pennsylvania The Central Railroad of New Jersey, besides being the principal avenue by which the products of Pennsyl vania are conveyed to New York, is also one of the most important routes to the West. Doubtless there is not a single road in the country which, in the two following aspects, can be said to rival it. In the first place, no road traversing so short a distance is so indispensable; and, secondly, there is none which can equal it in the pic turesque attractions which it opens up to tourists. The history of the road is full of interest, and particu larly for this reason, viz., the encouragement, or rather, we should say, the irresistible temptation which it offer ed to other railroad lines, inducing them to complete the connections for which it, acting as pioneer, had made the all-important preparation.
