Welcome to Vintage Railroad Postcards!

Thank you for stopping by! This is the blog for the Russell P. Panecki Collection of vintage railroad-related postcards. The entire collection consists of nearly one thousand so far with images dating from circa 1904 to the 1950s. To leave a comment, ask a question, to contribute or correct historical information, a comment box is located to the left for your convenience.

Each page, including this homepage, has an index located in the lower portion of the page. In addition to the index, posts were updated with historical information, new postcards added from storage files, while some posts were completely rewritten or edited for corrections. Three articles have been added and are worth reading. They include how vintage postcards were made, the history of Pennsylvania Station, and the history of Grand Central Terminal.

My apologies, but the postcards in my collection and on this blog are not available for sale, copying, or for contribution to projects. Please keep in mind that I reserve all rights to the images and content of this blog.

Hudson & Manhattan Railroad

 In 1908, the first successful railroad to travel in a tunnel under a river went into operation and was named the 'Hudson & Manhattan Railroad'. Connecting stations in Manhattan with Jersey City and Hoboken on the New Jersey side. 'The Tubes', as they are known, carry thousands of passengers daily under the Hudson River. Here are circa 1910 postcards that give us a look at this triumph of engineering and technology of the time. For more information on the Hudson & Manhattan Railroad, click Here and Here.
