Heroes one day become legends and the steam engine is no exception. The Kaufman Electrification Act of 1923 mandated electrification of all railroads in New York City by January 1, 1926, and affected mainline traffic and freight yards in all New York City boroughs and the rail system of Staten Island. The first operational diesel switchers operated in the Bronx and Manhattan in 1925. The act created a foothold for diesel locomotives and ushered in the “dieselization” of American railroads. And the rest, as they say, is history.
