The list of Eastern Railroads consists of many small regional railroads of the east, from Ohio east and northeast into the New England states and as far south as Maryland that are not included in the major lists of railroads that are in the Chicago Hub or Chicago Connecting railroad sections, Some of these eastern roads have some interesting histories. Many were among the first railroads in the U.S. The Delaware and Hudson that started as a canal company, built an incline railroad and operated the first steam locomotive, the Stoughbridge Lion, in 1829.There is the potato carrier, the Bangor and Aroostook and roads that have a myriad of ancestor roads, such as the Boston and Maine, Maine Central, Central Vermont and the Reading (of "Monopoly" fame). The Boston and Maine and the Maine Central also introduced, in 1935, one of the first articulated deisel electric train sets, the "Flying Yankee".
