Railroads of Pennsylvania by Brian Solomon

Book Description

Few states have a railroad heritage as rich as Pennsylvania's. This illustrated book offers a colorful look at the Keystone State's 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 today's historic tourist roads, museums, and destinations, including Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum, Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania, Steamtown National Historic Site, Electric City Trolley Museum, Friends of the East Broad Top Museum, Lake Shore Railway Museum, Pennsylvania Trolley Museum, and Rockhill Trolley Museum."Railroads of Pennsylvania" travels from Scranton, home to Steamtown USA and the Laurel Line trolley, to Altoona, the heart and soul of Pennsylvania railroading; from East Broad Top, one of the nation's 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 Pennsylvania's railroads and a thoroughly enjoyable tribute to the state's key place in railway history and lore.
