Scenes Along the Rails is the anchor title for a series of books planned to pictorially explore the railroads and related industries of Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and New England. The first 25 years of the 20th century-perhaps the busiest time for American railroads-forms the time frame for the series.
Part 1 of Volume 1 centers on Scranton, Pennsylvania and the surrounding area.
