This signal tower controlled a strategic interlocking on the busy four-track signaled and electrified New Haven Line that is now part of the Northeast Corridor.

This complex interlocking included the junction with the non-signaled Danbury-Pittsfield branch line and also included the four-track swing bridge over the Norwalk River. This book is about the New Haven, Penn Central and successor railroads, and the role that S.S.44 / Berk and the other signal towers played in train operations, dispatching and control.

The twenty (20) chapters in the book are about trains, history, technology, signaling, rail operations (including operating rules and procedures), people, and much more. The book is fully illustrated with approximately 76 color photos, 36 black and white photos, and 30 other graphics. Great train photos, including many by well-known New Haven Railroad photographer T. J. Donahue.
