ABOUT THE BOOK
350 Pages, 10 Maps, 200 Illustrations & Many Locomotive Photos
THE STORY OF ONE OF THE MOST COLORFUL SHORT LINES DURING THE GREATEST YEARS OF AMERICAN RAILROADING
This volume is a mine of information and enjoyment, not only for railfans but also for serious students of the history of the eastern trunk lines and the history of south central Pennsylvania and Maryland. It conveys in a readable style the usual aspects of a railroad's history - engineering, construction, motive power, operations, traffic, finance - but goes beyond this to provide in vivid detail the human side - the lives of the railroaders, the character of the road's officers, and the line's relationship to the community. Finally, it recounts the little known but dramatic part this road played in the longterm rivalry of several big systems-the Pennsylvania, B&O, Reading, Western Maryland, and Norfolk & Western.
