Synopsis

Few states have a railroad heritage as rich as Pennsylvanias. This illustrated book offers a colorful look at the Keystone States historic railroads, the men who built and ran them, and the engineering feats that made them possible. Railway historian Brian Solomon also shows readers the legacy those railroads have left in the form of todays historic tourist roads, museums, and destinations.

Railroads of Pennsylvania travels from Scranton, home to Steamtown USA and the Laural Line trolley, to Altoona, the heart and soul of Pennsylvania railroading; from East Broad Top, one of the nations best-preserved historic railways, to the famed Horseshoe Curve, which still hosts 50 trains a day; and to current operations like the Delaware-Lackawanna Shortline with its gleaming fleet of Alco diesel locomotives.

Illustrated throughout with beautifully detailed modern photographs, black-and-white archival images, and specially commissioned maps, this book is at once a handy guide to Pennsylvanias railroads and a thoroughly enjoyable tribute to the states key place in railway history and lore.
