   The Poughkeepsie & Connecticut Railroad Preview Go
The Central New England Railway (CNE) was a railroad across northern Connecticut and west across the Hudson River in New York. One line that made it up was the Poughkeepsie & Connecticut. The Poughkeepsie Bridge company could not buy a railroad to provide access to their bridge so built a 28 mile long railroad and called it the P&C, Poughkeepsie & Connecticut. This new line ran from the bridge in Poughkeepsie northeastward.It lasted until 1909. Before the whole CNE Railway went away, it was acquired by the New Haven Railroad.
