NEW YORK CENTRAL SYSTEM MARINE DEPARTMENT’S  ROSTER OF BARGES

Main source of this data is a clerk’s file box “MCL Card File” (Marine Craft Listing), now in the collection of the South Street Seaport Archives, which contains a single 4×6 card for each named craft.  These cards gave the basic data for each barge, and on them a clerk would recorded relevant data during their lifetime, such as major maintenance events. Most of the cards are for unpowered barges, but a few ferries and other craft were also given a card. The numbered craft were apparently given a different file; that file did not end up in the Archives. Some of the written notes on these cards were in handwriting that is hard to decipher; where there is doubt about the exact spelling, the word is followed by “?” here.
The material of construction was wood unless “steel” appears in this line; wooden construction was the default method until very late in the department’s history, except for a few craft that needed additional strength. The railroad did switch to steel construction as a standard in the 1950s, and then numbered its craft instead of naming them, and these craft apparently were given a different set of file cards that did not end up in the file that ended up in the Seaport archives. Thus information about numbered vessels in this roster comes from a variety of other sources.

OVERVIEW OF THIS ROSTER:
Each entry in the roster contains the following:
First line contains the name of the craft, then its basic characteristics: type of craft; hull no., date built and builder; dimensions and capacity.
The builder name is shortened to save space; the full name, plus the location of builder (where known) is given in a list at the end.
Hull number: this is a number issued by the government for each hull constructed, inscribed somewhere in its bowels, that remained the same even if the craft was rebuilt and renamed by a new owner. This allowed data to be kept coherent, especially for the purpose of listing in the Merchants Vessels of the U.S. (MVUS) directory, formerly issued annually (past issues are available for reference in various marine archives). In some cases, instead of a hull number, the MCL provides a “Custom House Number”, starting with “CH”; this was another official number provided to some craft, to make sure that import or export freight passing through did not bypass customs payments.

Lines below the first one are for additional information:
Most of these craft were acquired new, but if it was acquired secondhand (later than its build date), the acquisition date and source are given on the next line. Further lines give major changes to craft over time (e.g. conversion to other type).  The last line tells how craft was de-accessioned: some were sunken or destroyed in accident; most were sold at the end of their useful life. The price sold for is given here, as it gives some indication of condition at time of sale. The initial cost of most of these bargse was in the tens of thousands of dollars, depending on complexity of the craft, year built, and other factors.

ABBREV’s  for type:
CB = covered barge
CSB =  covered steam hoisting barge
GHB = Gasoline Hoisting Barge
GrBt (or GB) = grain boat

BUILDERS: See list at end  (“ by ?” means no builder is listed on the card)

CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL is wood, unless otherwise noted after builder name
DIMENSIONS: Given as length x width (beam); D is depth;
