Holiday Overstock Sale
Stop by our online store and check out our 50% off Holiday Overstock Book Sale. From Sunday, December 3, 2023 through Sunday, December 10, 2023, we will have the following four books on sale at half-off that you may want to gift to people outside of PRRT&HS:
- From the Midwest to Florida by Rail, 1875-1979 – Vol. 1
- From the Midwest to Florida by Rail, 1875-1979 – Vol. 2
These two books may be of considerable interest to people interested in the other East Coast railroads. Their trains to Florida are well documented from the earliest routes all the way into the Amtrak era.
- Pennsylvania Railroad Advertising Art 1859-1968
While focused on the PRR's marketing, this may be a good book for people interested in the evolution of marketing, advertisements and vacation destinations from 1859 through 1968. During this time the PRR was the largest railroad in the United States, with passenger traffic that exceeded all others. The PRR also advertised travel to destinations in conjunction with other railroads that were outside the PRR network .
- Locomotives of the Pennsylvania Railroad, Volume 1, The Early Years, 1848 to 1874
Pennsy locomotives weren't always K4s, I1s, T1s and J1s. Learn about the steam that pulled its trains and conquered its grades in the early years.
Visit the store to see the sale prices. Our normal shipping is USPS Media Mail, but if you want the Books before December 24th, we recommend selecting UPS ground. There is no assurance over the holiday season that media Mail will arrive in a timely manner. For the first three books the sale price saves more than shipping by UPS.
Doubtful these prices will ever be offered again. The first three books may be destined for Amazon, but not at these prices (Amazon Prime may be free to the buyers, but not to the sellers...)
