It hauled more freight & passengers than any other railroad in the world. With the construction of the palace-like Pennsylvania Station in Manhattan just after the turn of the century, it must have seemed that the Pennsylvania Railroad would last forever. Sadly, it fell prey to the problems facing so many railroads in the post-war years. But the memory of this great institution will linger for many years to come. This lavishly illustrated book tells its story.
