Significance: The buildings in the New Haven Rail Yard are associated with southern New England's most important rail carrier of the late nineteenth and first half of the twentieth centuries, the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad. In addition to a near monopoly on freight in this heavily industrialized region, the railroad operated one of the busiest passenger services in the country. The buildings in the rail yard reflect operational support functions: building and repairing locomotives and freight cars, material storage, crew facilities, train control and central heating. Although sometimes overshadowed by other shop facilities, the New Haven yard played an important role throughout the railroad's long history.
