Does anyone know what became of Robert Archer?

 
No, but if you google up "robert archer," be prepared to wade through many pages of hits. Apparently there are/were a *lot* of people with that name!
 
It is strange that he wrote the definitive LV history and apparently has never been heard from again by the railfan community!

Mr. Heiss,
   I am writing a book on the early history of the Black Diamond Express and in your book published by Arcadia there was a photo of a wreck of the Black Diamond, I believe, at  Easton, I believe, on Feb. 12, 1907. The New York Times reported the following day:
      Girder Saves Passengers
   Part of Lehigh Valley Train in Danger
       of Plunging Over Bridge
     
     Easton, Penn., Feb. 12. - An iron girder extending above the track this afternoon saved at least two cars of the Lehigh Valley's west-bound Black Diamond Express from going over the side of the Delaware Bridge and into the river, seventy feet below.  The two last cars were derailed in a manner that seems to mystify railroad men.
     The first of the derailed cars ran along the ties for a distance of about 25 yards. The others swerved to the right and ran to the very edge of the bridge. The women shrieked and the men rushed towards the doors. Some were prevented from jumping out. Several persons were slightly injured by broken glass.

The original edition of Archer's LV history was published by Howell- North in 1977. I own a copy of the 1978 Howell-North second printing. (The Heimberger House edition was a later reprint, as Howell-North went out of business.) The price sticker on the dust jacket of my copy says $30, which I take it was the original price; I paid $70 IIRC for mine, used, in pristine condition, during the interim period before the later reprint. I think I bought it from the late Paul Kuehner (Rails 'n' Shafts) at an Ag Hall train show, but it might have been from Charlie Houser when he was still dealing at Ag Hall. This was quite a few years ago, probably in the late '80s-early '90s.

I would like to humbly add my own work to this list....
 
If you enjoyed the Archer book, you'll probably enjoy my book, which covers the last chapter of Archer's book in far greater detail.  Archer essentially gives up when passenger service ends - there are only 14 pages after that.  Here's a much more in-depth look at 1965-1976....
