FROM THE AUTHOR:
Ghost Rails V is my ninth book. When I first retired from teaching English at Blackhawk High School; it was my intention only to write a book about the Y&S and PL&W, but my quest got "railroaded." I discovered there was too much American railroad and industrial history along the Ohio and Pennsylvania state line where I live. And, the gateway was in my backyard. It is a race between health, time, research, and the Lord's grace to complete the work.
Days, weeks, and months are needed to track down info and explore old grades. Data is currently compiled on my PC for years and books to come. In my eight years of writing, several individuals I have interviewed have died, but they had contributed to a history they were a part of and in some cases for a good bit of their life. It adds a touch of sadness.
These old lines take on a life with the gathering of knowledge, interviews, photos, and especially of walking old grades. When a volume is completed, it is almost like a loss with the completion and the end.
Several years ago an older gentleman, now deceased, who lived by the Y&S at Signal, Ohio, described his interest in old grades as a love for what was left behind. It is this love that drives me to record our state line history. I am sure my readers and those who are yet to come share that love of what is left behind as well as an interest in railroads and industry.
