A Fascinating Ride on the Rails of History

From 1900-1957, a brilliant and dedicated engineering team brought forth the most powerful and efficient locomotives in the nation, and made the "Pennsy," as it was colloquially known, the "Standard Railway of the World."
Alvin Stauffer's knowledge of the Pennsy's steam and electric engines makes Pennsy Power the cornerstone for any rail fan's personal library. This comprehensive guide contains... Detailed descriptions and illustrations of all classes of steam and electric locomotives Black and white photos from the Pennsy's Golden Age - from 1925-1958 - And much, much more!
