Volume 2 in this full-color series takes the reader all along the Black Diamond Route with beautiful photos of the late post-war steam engines and early diesels throughout western New York. The passenger fleet is given its due in several locations in the lower Lehigh Valley with side trips to the Hazleton Branches and Binghamton.
Also featured are operations not normally seen: the New York Harbor Marine operations and the hump yard at Oak Island. Throughout the book, special attention is paid to the men who worked so proudly on this historic railroad. 128 pages.
