Happy May Dayeveryone! Sure enough, the latest polling has the sales tax losing badly while a majority favor legalizing marijuana. In the case of the politicians, I would guess cowardice or expediency.
Introduction This project was originally undertaken for and published by the Bridge Line Historical Society in its October publication of the "Bulletin". I have been a member of this historical society for several years.
I had long hoped for someone to write a detailed article on the Ticonderoga Branch of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad. I had run across brief bits and casual references to this little known branch, but never anything detailed or in-depth.
Finally, I decided to write an article myself and submit it to the Bridge Line Historical Society for publication. I figured, why not? And so began the research process beginning with many Ticonderoga materials I already owned as well as my many childhood memories of the Delaware and Hudson Railroad's influence in Ticonderoga.
This web page was eventually created from the original "Bulletin" article. Since that time, I have continued researching information, gathering additional photos and maps, and updating the information on this web page as relevant information surfaced.
The line is also referred to as the Baldwin Branch in much of the Delaware and Hudson literature. Date is unknown, but the engine was scrapped on March The Lake George Branch terminology was used for years, but was renamed the Baldwin Branch between and Despite all these naming conventions, the branch line from Montcalm Landing to Baldwin is properly named the Baldwin Branch.
The small branch that split from the Lake George Branch which I will call the Baldwin Branch from this point on at Ticonderoga or Delano Junction and traveled into the Village of Ticonderoga was correctly referred to as the Ticonderoga Branch by the Delaware and Hudson and was owned by the Ticonderoga Railroad Company.
This is confirmed by much of the Delaware and Hudson literature I have seen such as the Joint Official Lists published annually by the railroad. The first steamship "Ticonderoga" traveled along beautiful Lake George carrying passengers from the Fort William Henry Hotel south to the railroad dock at Baldwin near the Village of Ticonderoga from until it burned in The ship was christened by Miss Cora Baldwin, daughter of Capt.
The second "Ticonderoga", pictured here, ran along Lake Champlain. It opened for rail service on May 1, It was built upon and followed the old Baldwin stage route that had been used for years to link Lake Champlain with Baldwin dock. Up untilconnections between steamboats on Lake George and Lake Champlain were made by stagecoach under the guidance of William J.
The Baldwin stages carried passengers making the five-mile trip in about 35 minutes. Construction of the Baldwin Branch ended the old Baldwin stage route although a smaller line continued from the railroad station at Addison Junction to the Central House, later the Burleigh House, in the lower village of Ticonderoga until the early 's.
Date unknown, but the Alco engine was scrapped in October M Wright collection The street names in Ticonderoga changed over the years from the more traditional street names to a more historical naming convention.
Throughout this information, street names inside parentheses denote the earlier or later street name. History A little background history may be in order to explain how the railroad eventually came to the Ticonderoga area.
New York and Vermont railroad interests competed heavily to establish and control rail service north through the Champlain Valley. Inthe Whitehall and Plattsburg Railroad Company incorporated and began surveys for a rail line between Port Henry and Ticonderoga.
Due to the intervention of the Civil War, actual construction to Ticonderoga did not begin until February 20, when a start was made in the town of Crown Point.
The impetus for the renewal of construction came from backing received from state aid plus local subscriptions from various towns along the lakeshore.Bad Boys II () cast and crew credits, including actors, actresses, directors, writers and more.
