The Lehigh Valley Railroad East of Mauch Chunk by Greenberg Jr & Fischer with dust jacket, Copyright 1997,  192 pages, index.  
An abundance of coal from the mineral rich Appalachian Mountains of eastern Pennsylvania furnished industry in the northeast with a seemingly inexhaustible supply of energy. Anthracite fired the boilers of industrialism and industry, in turn, fueled a nation's desire for consumerism.
The first to tap the mineral riches from the mountains and valleys along the Lehigh River was the Lehigh Coal & Navigation Company. To bring anthracite to market they developed a system of canals and slack water navigation. Then the railroads came and the transport of anthracite changed forever. Although the mines were high in the mountains, eastbound from Mauch Chunk the grades were favorable, and endless train after train carrying black diamonds rolled to tidewater.
This is the story of one of history's major anthracite carriers, the Lehigh Valley Railroad. Come along on a journey of narrative and photographs, over a railroad the likes of which America will not see again.
