Of late the New York, New Haven & Hartford Railroad Company has been severely arraigned in
political and press attacks. The former will be answered in due time in the courts.
I would, however, ask the indulgence of the press and the temporary cessation of its hostilities for a
few weeks, pending the reconstruction period through which the Company is now passing.
No railroad in the country is fully equipped with No. 20 cross-overs, but the PublicUtilities Commis
sion of Connecticut has ordered that all trains in that State shall come to a full stop before switches
are thrown at anything less than No. 20 cross-overs.
This means, to maintain the efficiency of our service, a half-million dollars to be expended in con
struction of cross-overs, switches and signals, and the materials therefor have been ordered. Meanwhile,
in compliance with the order of the Commission, there is a necessary slowing down in our time schedules,
making for irregularity in the train service, especially during the winter months, when it is more difficult
to make up with safety for the running time cut out of our schedules.
It is believed that a new time schedule pending this reconstruction period will insure greater
safety. It should be put into effect, according to present plans, about February 2d.
Reconstruction of cross-overs will follow, and in a few months the old time schedule should be
restored and maintained with the greatest punctuality consistent with safety.
The New York, New Haven & Hartford Main Line should be maintained as the safest railroad in the
United States. It has been largely rebuilt and its electrification inaugurated during my administration
and no passenger loss has been met with by reason of this reconstruction.
I desire now that this newest reconstruction shall be had without accident and therefore ask the
indulgence of the public and the press, and particularly the press, because attacks upon a railroad
management during a reconstruction period have possibilities of a demoralization in the personnel and
working forces that directly increase the hazard of railroad travel.
Generally speaking, the hazard of railroad travel is less than that of street or other highway travel
but the responsibility in railroad travel is more directly upon the authorities, who are held in full meas
ure of responsibility for every accident, whether or not such may be due to causes absolutely beyond
At the present time the travelling public and the press can assist in increasing the safety of travel
by rail on our lines by suspending criticism and judgment concerning delayed trains for a few weeks.
