The Delaware and Hudson Railroad (D & H) grew out of the Delaware and Hudson Canal Company, formed in 1825. By 1829, the Canal Company was utilizing locomotives to supplement canal travel, the most famous being the "Stourbridge Lion." By the late nineteenth century, the D & H had rail lines throughout northeastern Pennsylvania and New York. Today it is part of the Guilford Transportation Industries, Incorporated of Massachusetts. The records comprise 4 cubic feet of assessments reports and printed histories, and 7.2 cubic feet of photographs of locomotives and rolling stock, as well as explosions, wrecks and a roundhouse turntable at Carbondale.
