The Alphabet Route - The Alphabet Route was an agreement between a group of railroads that formed a route to link the Midwest (Chicago, St. Louis, great lake ports) and the Northeast (Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York, Boston).  It was named the Alphabet Route because the majority of its members went by their initials, which caused an alphabet soup of routing names. From West to East, these railroads were: NYC&StL, W&LE, P&WV, WM, RDG, CNJ, L&HR, and NYNH&H.  This site contains a wide range of prototype information on the New Haven Railroad, including Passenger and Freight Car Diagrams, several Passenger Train Consist Lists and more.  The modeling information is extensive and covers several scales, but may contain some errors or outdated material.
