Introducing a new pictorial book focused on the Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton diesel era of the Monongahela Railway in southwestern Pennsylvania and northern West Virginia. The MRY once had a roster of 27 Baldwin-Lima-Hamilton S-12 diesels, which they used in multiple unit operation with as many as six units to haul 250 car coal trains down the namesake river to Brownsville, Pa. Eight former New York Central BLH RF-16 'Sharknose' diesels were acquired in 1967. Many action photos and photos at night.
