Articles - Prototype Research: PRR General Info & Links

Historical Diagram

External Reference:
The diagram below is one I created to help me figure out how the Pennsylvania Railroad was formed and how it was split up during and after the merger. The PRR introduced many innovations to railroading, including air conditioning, electrification, and the practice of loading truck-trailers on flat cars (which we now see in the form of intermodal transportation). The current keeper of all things PRR is the Pennsylvania Railroad Technical & Historical Society (PRRT&HS), which produces a very high-quality quarterly magazine. They also produce a quarterly online modeling magazine (digital PDF file only), called The Keystone Modeler. I am a member of this society.
