About this Item

This book looks at the PRR steam locomotive classes operating during the 1940s and 1950s. Our color photograph trip starts in the Windy City of Chicago and moves over the fast Fort Wayne Line. At Pittsburgh, we stop to visit two steam short lines related to the PRR, the Western Allegheny and the Ligonier Valley, and then move on to the mountain city of Altoona. From Altoona to Harrisburg, the multi-track mainline had a plentiful supply of steam and diesel-powered trains. Side trips to Sandusky, Sodus Point and Shamokin give us the opportunity to view large Pennsy steam power hauling coal and ore trains. The photographic trip finally ends in Camden, New Jersey, where steam remained in force until 1957 mixed with Baldwin diesels and several oil-electric cars. Four Ways West Publications, hardcover, 128 pages, 8.5 x 11 x .5 in., all Color photographs. Bookseller Inventory # fww544
