Western Pennsylvania railroading is our

the past. We hope that you enjoy the site’s archive galleries too, and will find
our book offerings interesting, as well.
Current Projects include:
Book: ENGINE FOR CHANGE Authored by Jack Polaritz with Beaver County
historian Charles Townsend III, this book tells the story of the development of
the Pittsburgh & Lake Erie Railroad in heavily-industrialized Beaver County,
Pennsylvania, adjacent to Pittsburgh. Richly illustrated with photographs, maps
and documents, the book traces the beginnings of the P&LE, and how important the
Beaver community was to its beginnings and to its becoming “The Little Giant”.
The book includes histories of the communities, various mills, railroad
facilities and operations as they evolved on the P&LE in the county from 1874 to
1992. Publication of the projected 240 page book is planned for Spring, 2011.
Book: MONONGHALEA RAILWAY MOTIVE POWER Authored by David Gratz and Jack
Polaritz will present the locomotives that were owned by the Monongahela Railway
and its predecessors from steam and diesel operations. Many never before seen
action photographs will be included, in addition to drawings and documents from
Mr. Gratz’s collection from his days as General Superintendent of the line.
Publication of the planned 64 page book is scheduled for the Summer, 2011.

photo galleries: the Baltimore &
Ohio, Chessie System, CSX, the Pennsylvania Railroad, Penn Central, New York
