Many ideas have been brought up over the years to ease commuting problems from New Jersey. One of the most interesting was a 1935 proposal by L.Alfred Jenny which consisted of a modern electrified railroad connecting the various New Jersey railroads and bringing these lines into a new passenger terminal in mid-Manhattan. Public Support of Private Railroads. The greatest economic factor of the 19th Century was the railroads. Public money helped them then and it could help them now.A real story for this era is how General Motors, Ford and Chrysler reshaped American ground transportation to serve their corporate wants instead of social needs.
