Anthracite Rebirth tells of the rebirth of rail service in one of the most interesting regions of the United States, the anthracite, or hard coal, mining region of northeast Pennsylvania. The book chronicles the growth of railroading in the anthracite region, its gradual decline which coincided with the decline of anthracite mining and the formation of the giant comglomerate Penn Central, its rationalization with ConRail, and its rebirth with the formation of a new regional carrier, The Reading and Northern Railroad System. This book will show how dedicated service by the management and employees of the Reading and Northern brought the shine back to once rust covered rails in the anthracite region. New uses for hard coal in the chemical and manufacturing industries have brought new interest to this purest of all coal. This reliable system now supplies a myriad of chemical, plastic, lumber and new environmential industries with fast, reliable service. Read how hard work and a good work ethic can turn things around in even the most dire circumstances. Take a ride with the author and his fellow employees through the valleys and over the mountains of northeast Pennsylvania as they help owner Andy Muller Jr. realize his dream of revitalizing rail service to this important area. And last of all, just enjoy the pictures of railroad people at work. If nothing else, this book is about people and how they make a railroad operate. Come and meet the family on the Reading and Northern.
