Rails to Penn State by Michael Bezilla
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


More than five hundred short line railroads existed in the United States at the industry's height and Pennsylvania had more than any other state. The history of the Bellefonte Central, which operated in central Pennsylvania from the 1880s until 1982, is a classic story of the rise and decline of short line railroads nationwide. Connecting with the Pennsylvania Railroad - a company that proved to be both friend and foe - the Bellefonte Central played an important role in developing the region's renowned limestone and hot-blast ironmaking industries and was Penn State University's economic lifeline for generations.
