This book is a celebration of the Pennsylvania Railroad and an attempt to show through color photography what set it apart from other American railroads. Some of the themes are superlatives: the most, the biggest, the best, in motive power, physical plant, rolling stock, employees. Others point to what was unique, characteristic, idiosyncratic, unforgettable: the Penny look, in equipment, stations, geography, operations. A final theme is history: what pictures point to the changes in the railroad and its environment that make us understand its decline and fall, from industry leadership to bankruptcy in the Penn Central debacle.
