Book Description: Washington D. C. Chapter National Railway Historical Soc., 1979. Hard Cover. Book Condition: VG+. Dust Jacket Condition: VG-. 350 pp. with 10 maps, 200 illustrations and numerous locomotive photographs. An outstanding volume of information regarding the eastern trunk lines and the history of south central Pennsylvania and Maryland. It discusses all aspects of a railroad's history - engineering, construction, motive power, operations, traffic, finance - and also provides in vivid detail the human side - the lives of the railroaders, the character of the roads officers and the line's relationship to the community. Finally, it recounts the little known but dramatic part the railroad played in the long term rivalry of several big systems - the Pennsylvania, B & O, Reading, Western Maryland and Norfolk & Western. Discusses the history of America in its pages - through the Civil War, the iron ore boom, the great coal push and during World War I when it was absorbed by the Pennsylvania Railroad. A truly magnificent volume regarding the growth of the railroad industry. Minor wear/tear around edges of DJ. Scarce title. Bookseller Inventory # 36887
