The Ma and Pa
A History of the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad
By George W. Hilton  


The Ma and Pa

Affectionately known as the "Ma & Pa," the Maryland & Pennsylvania Railroad was one of the country's longest-running and best-known "archaic" railroads, holding on to steam locomotion and other outmoded technologies well into the 20th Century. Connecting Baltimore and York, the line had picturesque equipment, marvelous scenery, antique passenger trains and handsome small-scale locomotives. This new 244-page 6 x 9" paperback edition includes a new introduction and epilogue recalling the line's final years of service; also includes 140 halftone photographs and 28 line drawings.
