About this title


Fascinating and handsomely done history of the Cumberland Valley Railroad. The author describes the construction, motive power, operations, traffic and finances of one the country's best run short lines. Equally important, he covers in vivid detail the human side: the lives of the railroaders, the character of its officers and the line's relationship to the surrounding community. Finally, the book recounts the little known but dramatic part the CVR played in the long-term rivalry of several larger systems (the Pennsylvania, B&O, Reading, Western Maryland and Norfolk & Western) before it was absorbed into the Pennsylvania. Includes all-time locomotive roster as well as all-time list of officers and directors. Illustrated throughout with black and white photos. With 10 maps. 339 pages with index.
