It was no way to run a railroad, but the first companies bringing trains to Syracuse had no choice but to help fund a main competitor: the Erie Canal, according to a new book, "Railroad Wars of New York State." -- Syracuse.com
About the Author
Timothy Starr was born in Danbury, Connecticut, and moved with his family to Hebron, New York, in 1977. During his senior year in high school, he wrote his first book, a novel called The Meatloaf Incident and Other Adventures that is based on his experiences growing up in a rural community. Soon after graduating college, he moved to the historic county of Saratoga. After noticing many ruins around the town of Milton, he began researching its history, particularly during the mid- to late 1800s. After stumbling upon the old trolley railroad bed behind his house, he was motivated to write a book about it, called The Ballston Terminal Railroad and Its Successors. That project naturally led to another one that detailed the industries served by the railroad, called Lost Industries of the Kaydeross Valley. When he discovered that several important inventions were developed to support these industries, yet another project unfolded that resulted in a Ballston Spa book of inventions and a Saratoga County book of inventions. He has been published in Saratoga Living, Our Towne Ballston Spa, Spotlight Milton, the Saratogian, Schenectady Gazette and the Ballston Journal and is a frequent contributor to the Ballston Spa Life History Lesson series. He is currently the treasurer of the Saratoga County Historical Society (Brookside) Board of Trustees, and he lives in Rock City Falls.
