Tourists and Pleasure Seekers
WILL FIND THE
ROME, WATERTOWN & OGDENSBURG R. R.
TO BE PRE-EMINENTLY
THE ROUTE FOR TOURIST TRAVEL,
And it was constructed with that end in view.
Tis the great highway and favorite route for fashionable pleasure travel. It reaches direct, and by its own lines, all of the Summer Pleasure Resorts in Northern New York, the Western and Northwestern Adirondacks and along the St. Lawrence River, and by its direct and immediate connections furnishes the shortest and most desirable route to the Lower St. Lawrence, the Saguenay, the White Mountains, the Sea-shore resorts of New England and the Maritime Provinces.
The Rome, Watertown & Ogdensburg R. R is leased in perpetuity to the New York Central & Hudson River R. R., "The World's Greatest and Only Four-Track Railroad." The lessee company, appreciating the value of its new acquisition, and its capability of becoming the largest and most important summer resort and tourist traffic route in America, proceeded at once, with its usual enterprise, to raise to trunk line standard that portion of the newly acquired property patronized by the summer travel. This has been accomplished by hard work and the outlay of a large sum of money--nearly one million dollars-in permanent improvements and betterments, notably the relaying of the railway of the Eastern Division, "The Popular Black River Route," with the heaviest steel rails used north of the Trunk Lines, renewing and re-ballasting its road-bed, placing new ties and increasing the number of same per mile, replacing bridges with strong new ones of steel and iron, re-ballasting and improving the Syracuse Northern Line, and making various other improvements on the R. W. & 0, system, all of which enables the company to inaugurate a new era in Northern New York passenger train service. The improvement in equipment and service has kept pace with that of the road-bed and railway. Standard locomotives, capable of hauling the heaviest passenger trains at high speed, have been added to the motive power. The perfection and comfort of the new passenger equipment will elicit the admiration of its patrons. New trains, the counterpart in make-up of the famous Limited trains on the New York Central & Hudson River R. R., will run on fast schedule time and without stops from Syracuse and from Utica to Clayton for The Thousand Islands, the St. Lawrence River and Canada pleasure travel, also to Norwood for the Adirondack Mountains, the White Mountains, Maine and New England seacoast travel.
These trains will be perfectly appointed, solid vestibuled trains, and will carry new Day Coaches, new Wagner Sleeping Cars and Drawing-Room Cars, and Café Smoking and Library Cars. All cars have Wagner vestibules and are mounted on steel wheels In carrying out the policy of developing summer travel by offering every facility, the New York Central & Hudson River R. R. has placed in service new fast trains, designated on the New York Central & Hudson River R. R. as the "Northern New York Special" and the "Adirondack Mountains and Portland Special."
Complete trains will run solid, at the speed of the New York Central Limited trains, and with the equipment above mentioned.
