BALDWIN: FIFTY YEARS AT EDDYSTONE VOL 1 1906-1939 Scott Trostel 152 pages softcover

This volume is the first of two that explores the Baldwin Locomotive Works at its massive facilities in Eddystone Pennsylvania. Baldwin is synonymous with steam locomotive construction. It was a single site manufacturing plant until the upturn of business in 1906, when expanded foundry and machining capacity became necessary. Instead of attempting to buy ground somewhere in the immediate Philadelphia neighborhood and build another multi-story building, they bought the abandoned Gunsen Iron Foundry at Eddystone, Pennsylvania, twelve miles south. The foundry and 180 acres of pasture land comprised the first modest investment in what would become a600 acre manufacturing complex. It was a gem in a highly concentrated manufacturing center on the Delaware River. Baldwin practiced vertical integration manufacturing long before that phrase was ever trendy. At differing times they owned all of the raw materials, all the necessary manufacturing via steel mills and fabrication plants to produce every single component for a locomotive. Eddystone itself was first expanded in significant ways at the start of WWI as a defense plant to handle military needs including munitions, rifles, bullets, shells, cannons, specialty guns and canons plus mon-rail vehicles such as army trucks. With the union situation at the Broad Street Plant and its limitations of physical size, at the end of WWI the managers thought it more prudent to shift all production into the empty defense plant buildings at Eddystone in the 1920s.

BALTIMORE & OHIO RAILROAD CUMBERLAND, MD TO CONNELLSVILLE, PA Stan Trzoniec 162 pages hardcover

For railroads, the Baltimore & Ohio is hard to beat. For locations, and tucked into the southwestern part of Pennsylvania and running over the top of the Allegany Mountains, for enthusiasts, it is simply a great place to visit. Within the pages of his latest Heritage Series book, Stan Trzoniec takes the readers on a town-by-town journey that starts at the historic yard in Cumberland, Maryland. Moving west, you go through the Narrows into the flat land and the start of a serious elevation at Hyndman. From here, Fairhope, Glencoe, Falls Cut Tunnel and the famous horseshoe curve at Mance comes into view. For train engineers, the steep rise at Guard Rail curve can be troublesome with a heavy load, and then into the long tunnel and the 2258-foot summit at Sand Patch. Here, the area can be a beehive of activity as helpers are dropped and moved around while the train now enters the West Slope. Moving downgrade we drift into towns named Meyersdale, Garrett, Rockwood, Casselman, Ursina, Ohiopyle, the now deserted WH Tower at Green Junction at the end of the yard and finally, Connellsville, Pennsylvania all documented with B&O Historical Society vintage images with full color modern photography by the author.

BALTIMORE & OHIO RAILROAD IN MARYLAND David Shackelford 128 pages softcover

Incorporated in 1827, the Baltimore & Ohio Railroad (B&O) was one of America's first railroads, and Maryland was its heart and soul. The B&O's creation was a tangible symbol of the Industrial Revolution, representing commerce and progress to towns along its route. Its headquarters and operations, centered in Baltimore, provided years of economic growth for the port city. This book contains images of well-known stations in Maryland, including Ellicott City Station, Gaithersburg Station, Camden Station, and the Mount Clare Shops'a self-contained industrial city, now home to the B&O Railroad Museum. Some stations still exist and are home to small museums or restaurants; others no longer stand, but images of them will remind even the casual historian of a time when railroads were a part of everyday life in America. Take a step back in time and revisit the sites, stations, and trains of the B&O that were once part of everyday life in Maryland and remember the glory of a bygone era.

BALTIMORE'S STREETCARS & BUSES Gary Helton 128 pages softcover Arcadia

In the 1850s, Baltimore's 170,000 residents had few options when it came to getting around town. Before the decade's end, however, the omnibus-an urban version of the stagecoach-emerged as Baltimore's first mass-transit vehicle. Horsecars followed, then cable cars, and ultimately electrically powered streetcars. Recognizing the need for cohesion, the city's myriad transit providers merged into a single operator. United Railways and Electric Company, incorporated in 1899, faced the unenviable task of integrating routes being served by inadequate, incompatible, and often obsolete equipment. Over the next seven decades, privately run mass transit in Baltimore survived bankruptcy, a name change, two world wars, the proliferation of private automobiles, a takeover by out-of-town interests, and a plethora of new vehicles. Arguably a unified system of privately operated mass transit was no closer to being a reality in 1970, when it reached the end of the line and was taken over by the state. Baker1

BEAUMONT HILL - SOUTHERN PACIFIC'S SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA GATEWAY John Signor hardcover

Mountain Railroading in Southern California has always been synonymous with names like Tehachapi, Cajon Pass and Beaumont Hill. While the 2 former passes have been the subject of several published histories, Beaumont Hill, Southern Pacific's gateway to southern California from the east, has been largely overlooked. From its fragile beginnings in the 1870's up to today's heavy double stack traffic, every facet of Beaumont Hill's long and colorful history has been explored. The book traces the evolution of motive power used on the line from American and Consolidation types to modern day high tech diesels, as well as following the rise and decline of passenger service over the line.

BESSEMER & LAKE ERIE RAILROAD - ARCADIA Kenneth Springirth 128 pages softcover

Andrew Carnegie's vision of transporting iron ore from his boats on Lake Erie to his Pittsburgh steel mills was realized when he obtained ownership of a series of railroad companies in the region. In 1900, these companies became the Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad, which connected the Lake Erie ports of Erie, Pennsylvania, and Conneaut, Ohio, south to North Bessemer near Pittsburgh. Through vintage photographs, Bessemer and Lake Erie Railroad highlights the railroad passenger excursions to Conneaut Lake Park and the steam and diesel locomotives used on the well-maintained line. The railroad continues to serve the steel industry today and in May 2004 was acquired by the Canadian National Railway. Baker1
