I have one of the books (Altoona - Pittsburgh). There are a number of
PC photos but the quality of them are not really that great. There seemed
to be more emphasis on PRR (of course) and Conrail.
The books are more of a history book with lots of photos rather than a
typical book. Initially I thought it was pretty good even though it was written

not purchase any more in the series after buying this volume.

interest it is likely this would be the
-I take it these books primarily cover infrastructure
rather than rolling
stock. Is that correct?
you recommend purchase of these books by someone who is
interested in adding Penn Central information sources to his
Any replies welcome. Would prefer off list since I
may have other questions
and don't want to clog the
