This book is the grand story of growth and atrophy of South Jersey rail, to the present day.

Preserving the heritage of "The Standard Railroad of the World" for future generations

The Society's mission is to further scholarly learning and interest in the Pennsylvania Railroad (PRR) and its predecessor companies by stimulating and encouraging the collecting, researching, recording and preserving of all technical, historical and practical information concerning the PRR and to make this information available to interested persons.
