This book tells the story of Bradford, Ohio from its beginning in the 19th Century until the day the tracks were pulled up in 1985. Since Bradford was a one-industry town, the book is the story of the Pennsylvania Railroad, its predecessors and successors, and its effect on the town. The book contains many illustrations including maps and photographs. A special feature is two large fold-outs that depict the railroad yard in three stages of its existence.
