      I started getting the books, Logging RR Era and Lumbering in Pa. So far I got 9 out of the 13 in the series. Only 4 more to go plus the index.
      at first I did not know what to expect but when I got my first one off eBay I was very surprised at how good these books are. Really great history and sweet pictures. Each volume focuses on a different part of Pa.
      now I just need volumes 7,8,9 and 11. And the index. Its too bad they are not in print anymore but they come up on eBay often.

      Good thing they have lots of pictures cause I'm sure your wife is tired of reading them to you when she tucks you in at night.

      I wonder if they are on Google Books?

      Nah... Probably not... Too recent.
