Mike and List,
The ERIE had a special relationship with American Shipbuilding Company. The
ERIE sold its Union Dry Dock shipbuilding yards in Buffalo to American
Shipbuilding in 1900 (sale final 1910). For details, please refer to my
article, "Erie's Union Dry Dock Company", in Vol. 20, No. 2, of the Diamond.
