The Pennsylvania Railroad's "keystone" was once one of America's most widely recognized corporate logos. The company's sleek trains attracted discriminating travelers during the golden age of rail passenger service. An economic powerhouse, which for years qualified as the nation's largest industrial employer, the Pennsy set the pace in freight tonnage, ridership, excellence of service, and fast schedules for its famous passenger runs.

The book traces the company's impact on Indiana's economy, the railroad's contributions to the Allied victory in World War II, and the postwar decline, which led to merger into Penn Central. Wonderful photographs, advertising and promotional materials, and detailed maps recreate the allure of the Pennsy's speedy passenger trains and the efficiency of its heavy-tonnage freights. The book provides ample evidence for the Pennsylvania line's famous slogan -- "The Standard Railroad of the World".
