"The Road To Paradise: The Story Of The Strasburg Railroad"

$ 6.50

In the late fall of 1958, a group of ardent railfans embarked upon the unique experiment of restoring and preserving the historic, worn-out Strasburg Railroad, America's oldest short line railroad in action, by operating it as a hobby. It was a bold venture without precedent; for running a standard gauge, common carrier railroad in the day and age of subsidized competition frustrated even the professionals. "The Road To Paradise" pictorially reports this remarkable experiment with fifty-two natural color photographs, exposed on four-by-five-inch negatives, through the lens of James E. Hess, one of eastern Pennsylvania's leading color post card photographers.

A great gift for fans of vintage railroading and Pennsylvania history.
