The Pennsylvania Railroad's "keystone" was once one of America's most widely
recognized corporate logos. The company's sleek trains attracted discriminating
travelers during the golden age of rail passenger service. An economic
powerhouse, which for years qualified as the nation's largest industrial
employer, the Pennsy set the pace in freight tonnage, ridership, excellence of
service, and fast schedules for its famous passenger runs.
The book traces the company's impact on Indiana's economy, the railroad's
contributions to the Allied victory in World War II, and the postwar decline,
which led to merger into Penn Central. Wonderful photographs, advertising and
promotional materials, and detailed maps recreate the allure of the Pennsy's
speedy passenger trains and the efficiency of its heavy-tonnage freights. The
book provides ample evidence for the Pennsylvania line's famous slogan -- "The
Standard Railroad of the World".
