"Dieselization was complete by the end of 1957. Steam locomotives had pulled their final trains on Middle and Susquehanna Divisions, and in New Jersey. And yet there remained one Belpaire boiler in steam: 0-6-0 switcher no. 5244 was leased to the 14 mile long Union Transportation Co. at Egypt, N.J. That stalwart little B6sb class holdout lasted until July of 1959 when she chuffed sedately into Camden Terminal and was subsequently relayed across Delair Bridge to West Philly Enginehouse on her final run. When 5244's fire was dropped, a 113 year steam history that embraced nearly twenty-five thousand locomotives was at an end"- This is the story of that era; the time when the Nation's largest railroad presided over the largest and most unique fleet of steam motive power in the land.
This picture-word study is clearly subdivided by locomotive classifications with 260 of its pages devoted to steam and 60 to electric.
Added flavor is furnished by railroad "art" including the famous Pennsy calendars.
