Pennsylvania Railroad Color Pictorial
Volume 3: Chicago to Camden, NJ

by David Sweetland.

Color laminated hardcover, 8.5x11.5, 128 pages, color images throughout.

"Volume Three in the Pennsylvania Railroad series 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 shortlines related to the PRR before moving to the mountain city of Altoona. Altoona to Harrisburg on the the multi-track mainline we'll enjoy the 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.

"Our photographic trip finally ends in Camden, N.J., where steam remained in force until 1957 mixed with Baldwin diesels and several oil-electric cars."
