The first steam link of the New York Central Lines was the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad, running from Albany to Schenectady and opened in 1831. The Mohawk & Hudson R. R. of 1831, the Utica and Schenectady R. R., opened in 1836, and the Utica and Schenectady R. R. of 1839, completed the line of the present Mohawk Division, the first of the main line of the New York Central Railroad, the Centennial anniversary of which falls due in 1931.
