DeWitt Clinton Add-on Coach

LIONEL HERITAGE SERIES: In 1831, the Mohawk & Hudson Railroad pioneered the first passenger train ever to run in the State of New York. Led by the famous Dewitt Clinton 0-4-0 steam locomotive the train included passenger coaches that were in essence the same design as the typical horse-drawn stagecoaches of the era. At a speed of 30 mph, passengers rode the 17 mile stretch from Albany to Schenectady and back. For 14 years this reliant train provided passenger service to the region and provided an early template for the nation’s 19th century passenger lines.

In 1893, a replica of the Dewitt Clinton was built by New York Central and displayed at the Columbia Exposition in
Chicago. In 1939 the famous steam locomotive was shown again at the New York World’s Fair. Presently, the colorful DeWitt Clinton replica locomotive and coaches are on display at the Ford Museum in Dearborn, Michigan.
