Named after the father of the Erie Canal, the DeWitt Clinton made its maiden run on August 9, 1831. As one of the earliest steam operated carriers in America, the DeWitt Clinton is truly unique in railroading history. With its passengers riding in standard stagecoach bodies mounted on railroad wheels, the sight of the DeWitt Clinton was just as startling in 1831 as it would be today!
