As I have done for the Lehigh Valley and most recently the Reading, I thought I would start a thread to post "Archived" news tidbits related to the Pennsylvania Railroad. Please feel free to contribute or comment.

Thank You! For your find of N Y P & N items. The line thought as a "front" for the Pennsylvania RR. In the items you located?  
These were not in the Hayman book (of over three decades back)... The book sorely needs a revised Second Edition. Doubt  
if it will ever happen?
