Sinopsis: Howell-North Books is enthusiastic about its new author and the remarkable job he has done in researching the century and a quarter history of this anthracite line. Replete with informative and excellent photographs, the history of the Lehigh Valley Railroad begins with the discovery of anthracite near Mauch Chunk, Pennsylvania. The necessity for its transport led to the founding of the company by Asa Packer. At its apogee, the LV was one of the major coal roads of the East, a trunk line carrier with a motive power stable of over a thousand locomotives, a Great Lakes steamship line, a fleet of express passenger trains, and an impressive share of Pennsylvania's mining and transportation industry. Its rails stretched through New York, Pennsylvania and New Jersey to reach the Great Lakes and the Atlantic seaboard.
