by Frank Wrabel, 2020


Beginning in 1925, PRR and B&O stepped up their train amenities to capture luxury service patrons traveling between Washington and Chicago. Their competition soon became a war that lasted 32 years, through the Depression, WWII, and the heady Postwar period. This book captures the story of two railroads' optimism and final resignation to changing market demographics. Author Frank Wrabel tells the story of this glorious fight.


About 375 illustrations, many in color. Hardbound, Smyth sewn, 186 pages.
