"Railroad Gazette was a trade journal first published in April 1856 that focused on railroad, transportation and engineering topics. Master mechanics read and used the publication to share information about railway matters with one-another. An article in the publication documented what was purported to be the first locomotive run in the United States on a railroad, which was stated as performed by the author of the article. It also reported about the Erie Railroad's Rochester Division's electrification and about the opening of the Thebes Bridge. Over time Railroad Gazette editors included Arthur Mellen Wellington, Silas Wright Dunning (1838–1924) and Matthias Nace Forney with Horace Cleveland as an article contributor." (from Wikipedia).
