Ghost Rails XIV Hallowed Grounds, 296 glossy pages, 16 color, 600 photos, is an outstanding Western Pennsylvania railroad, canal, and coal mining history. Volume 14 covers ground from Meadville and Crawford County to Cheswick in Allegheny County. Each section of the book is indeed and explained モHallowed Ground.ヤ The author believes this is his best railroad history covering obscure but the well-knownラa book total of less than 50 miles in great detail. First the PRR and B&LE: Linesville, Conneaut Lake Park, Meadville and the French Creek Feeder Canal, the Meadville Branch and Erie Railroad traffic over 15 miles of B&LE. Secondly, the Cheswick and Harmar Railroad, the railroad that made electricity, and one of Americaメs most horrific mining disasters; a B&LE line in its last two decades. Third and adjacent to the C&H, the B&LE Indianola Branch; a section of history parallel and crossing the PA. Turnpike near MP 46. Lastly the fascinating history of 10 miles of former B&LE main line and its remains in the Mercer County area. Almost parallel to and crossing the old line twice is the construction history of the new main, the Porter Cut Off, where the B&LE was literally built on "stilts." Climaxing this section is the coal mining and railroad history of Pardoe, where it all began. Golf1
