In the 20th Century, the DL&W was a shining example of a well run railroad. Its image of Phoebe Snow to promote the cleanliness of hard coal and the dust free ride of the stone ballast is a significant part of early 20th Century America. Photographer Henry Peterson chronicled the steam locomotives of the Lackawanna on the eve of dieselization. His efforts are shown in this 128-page Color book.
