Trains, Trolleys & Transit
A Guide to Philadelphia Area Rail Transit
by Gerry Williams

NH book photo Get a first-hand look at Philadelphia rail transit with this new 112-page color softcover publication from Railpace. Explore all of SEPTA's intriguing rail and transit lines - the Media and Sharon Hill trolleys, the Norristown High Speed Line, the Market-Frankford El and Broadway Subways, and of course, the Subway-surface trolley system, even Philadelphia's little-known trolley coaches. Additional chapters look at NJ Transit's Atlantic City service, the PATCO Lindenwold High Speed Line, and Amtrak Intercity service in the Philadelphia area.
A lively text by noted transportation author and Railpace columnist Gerry Williams is your "chauffeur" as you tour the SEPTA system. Following an historical introduction to the origins of SEPTA, with vintage PRR, Reading, Red Arrow and PTC views, the publication focuses on current SEPTA operations, with suggestions for riding and photographing the system.
