It was written by railroad historian Benjamin L. Bernhart who holds a BA degree in history and who has written 14 other publication. Mr. Bernhart is most noted for his 4 volume set on Reading Railroad stations. The book was edited by Jay Leinbach, a retired school teacher and hobby shop owner. The majority of the photograph were never published before. The photographs come from the collection of the Interstate Commerce Commission, William Krug (hobby shop owner) and James Brownback (Reading Railroad employee and owner of the Philadelphia, Reading, Pottsville Telegraph Company).
