For a time the P-RSL consisted of two competing lines. One operated by the mighty Pennsylvania Railroad, and the other by the competitive Reading with fast passenger train service. This is part of the fascinating story of this railroad. The book covers the early years up to 1976 and the formation of Conrail.
