"From Pittsburgh Junction in eastern Ohio to Connellsville in southwestern Pennsylvania, then over the mountains to Hagerstown, Maryland: a new black & white (duotone) pictorial covers the first decade of operations (1990-2000) of the reborn Wheeling & Lake Erie Railway. We will see detour trains, ore trains, coal and grain trains, we will see the former N&W slug sets, Sperry Cars...we will see a variety of locomotives from different corners of the United States.

"This pictorial book covers not only the former Pittsburgh & West Virginia Railway, but after arriving in Connellsville we will see a selection of photographs covering W&LE's trackage rights to Hagerstown (Md.) that follow the former Western Maryland Railway over the mountains via Sand Patch. Along the way we see Sand Patch, Hyndman, Viaduct and Miller Towers before they were retired."
