3 RIng Binder includes 5 different books:
Railroads in the Lehigh River Valley REVISED edition 1962 128 pages
PREFACE
The Lehigh Valley Chapter, National Railway Historical Society, Incorporated, corn-plying with numerous requests from railway historians and railway "buffs", presents this revised issue of its 1956, or second, publication entitled RAILROADS IN THE LEHIGH RIVER VALLEY, Steam Operation, 1836-1953. However, the editorial staff has combined information from the first edition with important events which have occurred since 1953 and has virtually produced a new book. The new version has been identified as a revised edition with no specific references to steam locomotives. Corrections, deletions, additions, and adjustments to the original format and texts have been accomplished wherever necessary.
Additional entries have enlarged the photograph sections, and available technical data have been listed underneath the captions of many locomotive photographs. Directions are identified according to railroad usage, where applicable, rather than exact geographical locations. Concise individual texts trace significant historical events which happened between the years extending from 1826 until, and including, 1962 and, with few digressions, in those areas of Berks, Bucks, Carbon, Lehigh, Luzerne, Monroe, Montgomery, and Northampton counties of eastern Pennsylvania which are located in the Lehigh River valley or within a twenty-five mile radius from Allentown, the largest city on the river's banks. The editorial staff realizes that each railroad's comprehensive history would require much more space than herein provided. Historical sketches of railroads, ten now operating and two defunct, are based on the systems as organized by 1910.

PREFACE
At the turn-of-the-century attractive resorts and hotels lined the Pennsylvania bank of the Delaware River at the Delaware Water Gap. Vacationers and honeymooners found the area's natural beauty most enjoyable and relaxing. Public transportation through the Gap began in 1846 when a stage coach made three trips a week, carrying mail and passengers between Easton and Milford. In 1854 Joseph Posten operated daily, except Sunday, omnibus service between Easton and Stroudsburg, a distance of 26 1/2-miles. The trip took 5.5-hours. Three years later the DELAWARE, LACKAWANNA & WESTERN RAILROAD began service to East Stroudsburg. The omnibus service was cut back to the village of Delaware Water Gap in 1858.Electric railways, from the south and the north, approached the Gap in 1905 and 1907 respectively, hut did not enter the Gap.

Liberty Bell Routes 1000 Series Interurban Cars History and Roster 1964
Copyright 1964
Lehigh Valley Chapter NRHS Society
82 pages
Sleek compact high speed lightweight single end electric interurban cars, representatives of a type constructed only in limited numbers, staged their last dramatic stand on Lehigh Valley Transit Company's famed Liberty Bell Route, or Philadelphia Division, in eastern Pennsylvania. From 1939 until 1951 thirteen former Cincinnati and Lake Erie Railroad Company cars and one Indiana Railroad Company car, all adorned in a glistening picador cream and mountain ash scarlet paint scheme, streaked up hill and down dale through rolling "Pennsylvania Dutch" countryside and towns between Allentown and Union, or 69th Street, Terminal nestled in Philadelphia's western suburbs near city line. Lehigh Valley Transit Company acquired the modern cars during their extensive 1938-1940 modernization program, a program the magnitude of which only a few electric street railway systems ever successfully conducted.
This publication, the seventh produced by Lehigh Valley Chapter, National Railway Historical Society, Incorporated, presents the complete history and roster of Lehigh Valley Transit Company's 1000 Series interurban cars. A brief review of operations in Ohio and Indiana permit the presentation of their complete history from their inauguration of service in mid-west America to their demise in eastern Pennsylvania.
