Before the Civil War, Cincinnati was the biggest town in “The West” - larger than St. Louis, and far larger than Chicago or Cleveland. Once the Pennsylvania Railroad reached Pittsburgh, Cincinnati was the great inland city to which the Railroad had to connect.

This book brings together photos, historical materials, and company records from sources both local and nationwide. It thus combines knowledge and images never before brought together. The book explores yards, stations, interlocking plants, and motive power over the 100 years the Pennsy came into Cincy, and shows that this part of the System was made up of both “standard” and highly nonstandard components. The 160 pages include 305 photos, three paintings, nine sidebars, six maps, and 44 assorted tables, posters, and track diagrams. All color originals are reproduced in color.

The book’s major sections include:

  • notes on the Pennsy’s local history and the Company’s relationship
    to other railroads in town
  • descriptions and photos of locations listed in employee timetables
  • roster and action shots of PRR steam and diesel in Cincinnati
  • detailed history and consists of the Cincinnati Limited
  • photo section dedicated to sleepers of the Cincinnati Limited
