Some Words With Author Of RVRR Book

Earlier this month, colleague Bernie Wagenblast from Cranford Radio and Transportation Radio spoke with Richard J. King, author of two books about the Rahway Valley Railroad (RVRR).

The Rahway Valley Railroad was built at the end of the 19th century and operated for 95 years from 1897 till 1992. The RVRR served a handful of towns on its 11-mile track, including Roselle Park.

Mr. King has written a two-volume book on the rail line titled “Just a Short Line: The Story of the Rahway Valley Railroad” and he spoke with Bernie Wagenblast on his opus. The conversation covered the railroad and its unique personalities following a presentation that was held at the Cranford Community Center. Below is a link to the actual interview and the article:
