  • P&LE's Berkshires (Polaritz)

This is the definitive book about these historically significant locomotives that were last domestically produced steam from the American Locomotive Company (ALCo). They were the product of corporate politics and never should have been built at a time when the diesel had become the railroad industry's choice for motive power. In fact, the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie did not want these locomotives, and could not even operate them over a significant portion of their railroad when received. The story is supported with many previously never before published historical documents. The book contains 134 B&W photographs, plus 52 documents, 13 maps and 6 drawings. It tells the story of how these locomotives came to be, their development and operations, both on the P&LE and New York Central Railroad. Kahndog Publications 2004 New HB. 132pp.  NOS-PLE-BRK
