The L&S PA Operations V2 book is self-published by the Author, Peter Brill. It is volume 2 of a planned 5 volume series on the topic. This volume book picks up where volume one left off in 1871 for two decades through 1891. During this period, the CNJ upgraded the L&S with double track and heavy steel rail, built branches to serve new customers, built a fleet of almost 20,000 6-ton coal jimmies, and started the conversion to 25,000 and 30,000-ton gondolas. Thousands of employees were also added to the rolls as this volume focuses on the tremendous growth and competition in this period.
The book is a 268-page soft-cover book of text, B&W photos, & maps on glossy paper
