The TTX Story

A Two-Volume Set

by James D. Panza

Richard W. Dawson

Ronald P. Sellberg

The Pennsylvania Railroad and Rail-Trailer Co. formed Trailer Train Co. in 1955 to expand piggyback service amongst the nation's railroads. PRR intially managed TTX, which expanded its ownership to 41 railroads. The 62-year journey started with 500 flatcars in 1956 and grew to over 161,000 cars (TOFC, auto rack, Railbox, Railgon, and special equipped) today.

The authors, combined, have over 90 years of service with Trailer Train/TTX. They present much "insider" information on company decisions, car design, and the shift to container intermodal service. The books are hardbound, all-color, horizontal format, and total 624 pages.

PRR Lines West
Erie & Pittsburgh Branch

by Alan B. Buchan

After over 20 years of research and writing, this 247-page book contains over 400 photos and track diagrams, plus two large insert pages of maps. It describes the railroad from its conception in September 1835 to the present day. E&P was a north-south Iine that followed the Conneaut and Shenango River Valleys. Although it was not part of the PRR main line, it played an important role. Unfortunately, most is gone today. Chapters include history, expansion, success and atrophy, the city and port of Erie, photos from Erie to Homewood, freight and passenger operations, equipment and operation, and interfaces with connecting roads.
