9780760303795: Pennsylvania Railroad (Railroad Color History)

At its peak the Pennsylvania was the largest railroad in the world. It operated 28,000 miles of track, directly served half of the U.S., and hauled more freight and passengers than any other railroad in the world. This colorful tribute to the Pennsylvania Railroad, the keystone of American transportation for 121 years, is filled with Pennsys crack passenger trains, including the Broadway Limited and Pennsylvania Limited, which connected New York City and Philadelphia with Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Chicago. The authors have filled this book with archival and color photos of the locomotives, trains and events of the Pennsylvania Railroad from the 1950s and 1960s.

Book Description:

Pennsylvania Railroad traces the history of one of the most powerful, influential railroads in American history--a railroad that Fortune Magazine called “a nation unto itself.”  Rail historian Mike Schafer examines the mighty railroad’s evolution from a disparate group of early horse-car lines into a twentieth-century transportation giant. Color and black-and-white photographs and period ads illustrate the railroad’s many facets, including both its passenger and freight operations, as well its motive power through the decades. Though the Pennsy was merged out of existence in 1968, an epilogue details the PRR legacies that survive on today’s modern railroad scene.        

From the Inside Flap:

The Pennsylvania Railroad is truly an icon of American transportation and, indeed, of American business. This illustrated history examines the evolution of the mighty “Pennsy” from a disparate group of early horse-car lines into a twentieth-century transportation giant sprawling across 10,000 route miles in 13 of the nation’s most populous states.

From humble beginnings in the 1800s, the Pennsylvania Railroad grew into a railroad that Fortune magazine called “a nation unto itself.” It owned its own shops, coal mines, hotels, communications system, and power plants, not to mention hundreds of depots (including the famous Penn Station in Manhattan), thousands of passenger cars, tens of thousands of freight cars, and a vast fleet of steam, electric, and diesel locomotives. Color and black-and-white photographs and period ads illustrate the railroad’s many facets, including its passenger and freight operations, as well as its motive power through the decades.

Though the Pennsy was merged out of existence in 1968, an epilogue details the PRR legacies that survive on today’s modern railroad scene.
