This book is organized by railroad and location, beginning with the Lehigh Valley around Towanda, Pennsylvania and then around Sayre, PA. Then on to Waverly, New York to look at the Erie, Lackawanna and Erie Lackawanna. Then the tour proceeds west to the Elmira, NY area. At Elmira it heads south on the picturesque Elmira Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
